Top Colleges Where Wheaton Academy Seniors Were Accepted

Mr. Jasper teaches a class at Wheaton Academy, a college prep high school

A Biblical Foundation

In a world that is increasingly filled with uncertainty, information, and change, it is so important to build our faith on the bedrock of Scripture. Wheaton Academy teachers commit their lives to helping students build their worldview.

College Preparatory

At Wheaton Academy, you will be challenged to maximize your intellectual potential so that you will be prepared for college. We offer classes that place you in your unique “learning zone.” Research shows that you will learn best when you are appropriately stretched and challenged. Classes that are too easy or too hard actually impede your learning process. At Wheaton Academy, classes are designed and teachers are trained to help you realize your gifting, receive individualized and appropriate challenge, and apply your learning outside the classroom.
