About Us » Admissions


Albany Park Multicultural Academy

Located in Chicago’s most culturally diverse neighborhood, APMA is a Level 1+ school and is one of the few junior high schools in Chicago devoted solely to 7th and 8th graders. It is home to just under 250 students.

We believe that.. 
  • APMA graduates can advocate for themselves with confidence and effective communication. They will approach all situations with an open, creative and perseverant mindset.
  • APMA graduates will demonstrate empathy and compassion towards others by recognizing injustice, and by being upstanders who take action in order to make the world a better place.
  • APMA graduates are lifelong, confident, healthy learners who ask questions as they have a curiosity for continued learning. They are critical thinkers, readers, problem solvers, and communicators,  able to decode their surroundings and effect change as informed and involved world citizens.
