Morgan Park Academy seniors caught the eye of top colleges and universities at a citywide college admissions forum at Navy Pier, earning early offers of admission as part of the Chicago Scholars program.

Students pre-selected up to 10 schools with whom they would interview at the Oct. 24, 2023 event. They had submitted application materials to these schools by mid-September, allowing admission officers time to review their applications prior to the interviews, which were held in person and virtually.

During the event, MPA seniors engaged in college interviews with admission officers from schools such as Yale University, Wake Forest University, Washington University in St. Louis, University of Michigan, University of Miami, University of Pittsburgh, and Marquette University.

While several of the colleges and universities have not begun extending admission offers at this point in the annual cycle, MPA seniors did receive admission at the forum from Pitt, Marquette, DePaul University, University of Iowa, American University, University of Minnesota, and Loyola University Chicago.

Students will hear about merit scholarships and many other admission decisions in the coming days and months.

Morgan Park Academy’s one-on-one college counseling program helps each student find a great school that’s the right fit, with college acceptances in the past 15 years including nearly all of the nation’s top schools, according to US News & World Report.
