Our student culture is founded on the belief that students who are seeking to live out their relationship with Christ can be treated maturely. As a student, you will be trusted and simultaneously held accountable to steward your opportunities well.

Grow as a Disciple of Christ

At Wheaton Academy, you’ll gather together with the entire student body for large group spiritual formation in chapel twice a week. You’ll dive deep into God’s Word during Bible classes. You’ll be discipled by peers and faculty, and trained as a servant-leader.
