We love Wheaton Academy! It has been a great experience for our three students. The teachers are wonderful, godly examples and mentors and really care about their students. All three of our kids have participated in the soccer program and loved it. The coaches are fantastic. Our daughter also participates in the musical theater department and loves that as well. We highly recommend Wheaton Academy!

I've really enjoyed my time at Wheaton Academy! The teachers are incredible and truly desire to get to know the students on a personal level. The idea of the "WA community" has become a bit of a cliche, yet it truly is tangible, with students and staff alike providing a Christ-centered and inclusive atmosphere. I can't complain about anything related to my overall academic experience. However, like any high school, there are tightly-knit cliques and groups that generally stick together; and there is an amount of rule-breaking that goes unacknowledged or unobserved. Overall, Wheaton Academy is a great institution, and I'd highly recommend it.
Wheaton Academy has many strengths but the one that most impresses me is the relationships between the students and the faculty. The school requires teachers to be accomplished in their discipline, dynamic in the classroom and comfortable in authentic christian witness. The school hosts Winterim between the fall and spring semesters allowing students to travel, do missionary work or work an internship in a career of interest. I traveled to Costa Rica in 2016 on a surfing expedition and Iceland in 2018 for an outdoor photography excursion. WA has a student-led spiritual life that incorporates weekly worship, musical performance, theater and dance. I would like to see the school adopt a standard measure of college readiness so it can be bench marked with area high schools.
