Celebrating 150 Years

Celebrating 150 Years2023-08-22T09:14:20-05:00

It has been an extraordinary 150 years for Morgan Park Academy. Evolving through a century and a half, changing names multiple times, and weathering pandemics and wars, the Academy and its alumni have left an indelible mark on Chicago and America.

Serving in two World Wars and other conflicts, defining society through their work and dedication, alumni and community members have made the Academy proud.

2023 will be one of celebration by highlighting the men and women who have defined the Academy and society, remembering our history, celebrating its many accomplishments, and planning for its future.

There are many ways to support this initiative. Peruse our 150th Anniversary Campaign brochure below to learn how your gift will secure the Academy’s future for another century and a half of success.

With excitement and pride, I look forward to hearing from all of you, alumni, alumni parents, parents, faculty, trustees, and friends.

Thank you for joining us in this wonderful celebration,

Mercedes Z. Sheppard
