Big things are happening for the better at MPA. I think the administrative changes are long overdue but will address these concerns. I just hope the Board will get the teachers back! We had the greatest, most committed, creative educators, and although I have not had enough time to get to know the ...  Read more

Diversity in the school is a huge positive for us. This is what the world is and it is great for our child to experience this during their time here. It will prepare them for the real world. To criticize this as the previous post did makes one wonder how open minded they are. Sadly some individuals ...  Read more

We are new to the school and we are very happy so far. My son's teacher is so nice and warm. We felt welcomed from the start. Her classroom is beautiful and my son loves it. I have also been very impressed with the Parents Association. The coffee and the picnic were great.

Awesome education. Morgan Park Academy is the best private, non-religious school in Chicago. My daughter graduated from MPA last spring and is now at a fantastic university.

Thank you MPA for providing an absolutely awesome Project Week for our 12th-grade son! He toured England and Scotland and loved his experience!!!

My family is new at MPA. I do not have enough room to post all of the accolades due MPA. My granddaughter is a freshman. From the moment we visited MPA, we knew we had found education heaven. The courteousness and helpfulness of every employee we've intereacted with, the excellence of and autonomy ...  Read more
