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.
