Thinking about Switching?

Homeschooling parents who made the switch to Wheaton Academy describe their experience here as a continuation and extension of their efforts at home. Hear directly from these parents as they share about the value of a Wheaton Academy education.

Meet Dana

Dana homeschooled her two boys before their family made the decision to enroll at Wheaton Academy. In this video, hear her reflect on the way Wheaton Academy partners with parents.

"I feel like we have invested in our boys for the long haul through their four years here. For them to be in community with other young people who are following Christ, pursuing excellence, and developing their gifts within the greater Christian kingdom—to me, it's priceless."

Meet Eva

Eva was homeschooled for eight years before coming to Wheaton Academy. Hear her share what it’s like to find community and get connected at school.

"When I first came, I was afraid that I wouldn't connect because I didn't know anyone, but teachers made a point of reaching out and getting to know me. The students were inviting and joyful. Everyone made me feel comfortable and safe."

I was homeschooled before I came to Wheaton Academy, and I was pretty shy when I was younger. Since coming here, I’ve grown a lot more confident and open, and that’s because of the people I’ve met.

I have friends at other schools and sometimes we talk about how school is going. Whenever I talk about this place, I realize that I’m smiling. I’ve grown so much here—Wheaton Academy has been a big blessing for me.
