A Morgan Park Academy education is one of academic excellence, above all. Our rigorous liberal arts education is the foundation for students developing intellectually, acquiring a body of knowledge that will help them succeed in school, college, and beyond.
By maintaining rigorous academic standards, we stretch our students' imagination and intelligence, preparing them for college scholarship and lifelong learning. Morgan Park Academy attracts students with strong academic potential. When these students work, learn, and grow together in small classes with great teachers, they are able to attain their personal best at every milestone.
Having a wide breadth of academic experiences in all grades results in higher scores on standardized tests. Our classes do not teach to the test, but rather expose students to the skills, challenges, and curriculum they need to succeed in standardized tests. Guidance counselors give students the individualized attention they need to choose the college that is right for them, and with consistently high scores on the ACT, AP, and SAT, our graduates are accepted to top colleges and prepared for lifelong success.
Academic success in the 21st Century revolves around access to and comfort with a digital world. At the Academy, students are exposed to technology and its learning power on a daily basis, in age-appropriate ways. All parents and students benefit from two-way communication with the school, through the use of social networking and blogging. A weekly email newsletter and teacher web pages keep families up-to-date with what's happening in class and keep parents' fingers on the pulse of their child's learning. Classrooms are equipped with SMART Boards, and the campus has wireless Internet as well.
