Chapel at Wheaton Academy

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.
