1) High School

Student-athletes have an opportunity to flourish as part of an exciting, up-and-coming athletic program at Horizon Science Academy McKinley Park. Become a building block of a championship legacy. Be #Undeniable!

The opportunity to participate on a Horizon Science Academy McKinley Park team is a privilege, not a right, and with every privilege comes inherent responsibility. The school takes pride in the accomplishments of its student-athletes. Every student-athlete should aspire to continue this tradition of excellence by embodying the school’s six core values: Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Courage, Curiosity, and Effort.

HSA McKinley Park High School sports compete at the 1A level. Boys Baseball, Girls Softball, and Girls Basketball have all advanced to the IHSA State Series Regional Semifinals in recent seasons.
