Since our days as a military academy, Morgan Park Academy has held as a core value the importance of service to the community.
Full-day service events and activities help students understand the important role they play in their communities and provide the opportunity to give back in meaningful ways — whether it takes the form of a donation drive, a neighborhood tutoring program, or a construction project at a school halfway across the world.
“When we planned a service project to renovate the MPA greenhouse, the overwhelming support we received from the school community was beyond belief.”
— Berat ’17
