  • Since its founding in 1853, Wheaton Academy has been an educational institution committed to the evangelical Christian faith.
  • The school was established on the belief that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.
  • Wheaton Academy mission is to nurture growth in our students through relationships, excellence and service to the glory of the God.
  • As a private school, we have tremendous flexibility in designing a curriculum that will meet the particular spiritual, social, as well as, academic needs of our students as they meet the ever-changing demands of the world in which they live.
  • In designing this innovative curriculum, we continue to draw upon research and experience that helps us understand how different teaching styles can be used in the classroom.
