Student Showcase Night - Wheaton Academy

STUDENT SHOWCASE NIGHT

Thursday, February 6, 2020

As you consider Wheaton Academy, we invite you to our Student Showcase Night. We will provide an overview of our vision for your student’s freshman year, practical tips for you to consider, and immediate next steps for your family to take.

Students are welcome to attend this event. It is designed to help inform parents, but we welcome students to hear this information as well!

We do ask families to register for this event. Please complete the form below to tell us you are coming. You can also submit any questions you would like to answer at the Student Showcase night.

Questions we will answer at this event:

  • How does Wheaton Academy use the placement test to customize student schedules? When does my student take the placement test?
  • What elective courses are available to freshmen? What is a common freshman schedule? How can our family maximize course offerings each year? How does Wheaton Academy support my student in this course selection process?
  • How will Wheaton Academy help my student connect with other freshmen? How will the school help my student transition into high school?
