  • Social Media Safety

    Student safety is our top priority in our district and here at Manual Academy. We encourage parents to educate yourself on social media (Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Tumblr, Kick, Whisper, etc.), have discussions with your child about the dangers and consequences of social media, and set rules and guidelines including keeping your computer in a common area of your home and frequently checking the privacy settings on your child’s accounts. We appreciate your assistance and patience in this matter, as we continue to work to keep our school a safe place to learn for all students.

  • IPA Principals' Recognition Breakfast

    Manual Academy administrators chose two students to represent the school at the annual Illinois Principals' Association Recognition Breakfast. The breakfast serves an an opportunity for school administrators to honor students who truly demonstrate the heart and soul of their school. Eric Cortez (Junior) and Logan Hills (8th Grade) were selected to represent Manual Academy based on their hard work, involvements, academic achievement, and most importantly their character and citizenship. Both serve as leaders within the school and its many organizations as well as role models in and out of the classroom. Students like these two young men make the educational process exciting and rewarding and Manual would like to thank them for embodying the true spirit of student leaders.
