The MPA Difference
With distinctive meaningful programs, the Academy goes far beyond preparing talented and diverse students for excellent colleges. MPA empowers its graduates to become world citizens with lives of purpose and personal fulfillment. Most importantly, MPA students develop a deep understanding of themselves, extraordinary skills for achievement, and the compassion to make a positive difference in the world.
MPA's distinguishing features include: an engaging and exciting academic curriculum, an oustanding community service, exchanges, and extraordinary international experiences.
Located on 20 beautiful acres in the Beverly/Morgan Park neighborhood, the MPA community includes day students, international boarding students (in grades 9-12 only), and faculty families who live on campus. Transportation and financial aid make MPA accessible to a wide range of families from throughout the Chicagoland area.
Nearly all students gain admission to an outstanding and wide array of 4-year universities. MPA helps students find the colleges or universities that best fit them.
What MPA Looks For
In the admission process at MPA, we look beyond the typical qualifications. While strong academic performance and test scores can show a student’s readiness for academic challenge, each student’s fit with MPA's philosophy and mission is also important. We look to see what each applicant will add to the mix of experiences, talents, backgrounds, and perspectives that forms the MPA community.
We look forward to seeing you on campus soon.
