The mission of Morgridge Academy is to provide an environment that nurtures the individual medical, educational, emotional, and physical needs of children who have been diagnosed with chronic illness. Rigorous, innovative and authentic experiences help us achieve that goal.
The Morgridge Academy Vision
is that our staff and students will work together to:
- Solve meaningful problems through collaboration and innovation
- Create products to share with family and community

The staff at Morgridge Academy is committed to providing a unique environment that nurtures the individual medical, physical, emotional and educational needs of the child. We provide a short-term placement where students and parents learn to manage the child’s chronic illness. Upon meeting medical goals, Morgridge Academy staff helps students transition smoothly to their local school.
