From the Head of School

Dear Parents, Faculty, Alumni, and Friends:

This year, we’re seeking $400,000 in donations to our Annual Giving Fund. Proceeds will benefit our Four Pillars of Giving:

Global studies, including academic innovation, inspirational speakers, thought-provoking field trips, life-changing service activities, and state-of-the-art technology.

World-class faculty, who are provided with opportunities to explore cutting-edge classroom initiatives and bring these new ideas and instructional methods into the classroom.

A sustainable campus that maintains its historic integrity while also becoming more energy-efficient, with classrooms designed for
21st-century learning, green spaces, and upgraded infrastructure and technologies.

Financial aid and scholarships to ensure our talented and diverse student body thrives, regardless of financial circumstances.

Thank you for your generous support of Morgan Park Academy. Over the years your support has made a difference in the life of our community. You have forever changed the philanthropic culture of the Academy. Ultimately you have shown your faith in us and helped to guarantee that Morgan Park Academy will fulfill its mission well into the new millennium.
