August at a Glance
We are excited about the new school year. There are many important events you won’t want to miss as we prepare to begin the year. Please click here to view these dates and events in August at Wheaton Academy.
Coaching, Conversations, Connections
The Center for Lifelong Learning is offering coaching for both parents and students providing space (in the Armour building) for conversations and connections before school starts.
45-minute sessions are available in August with certified executive functioning coach, Holly Taritas. She will provide executive functioning assessments for the parent and child. Great for middle school – high school. If you are interested in starting the school year off strong by understanding why executive functioning skills matter sign up at Schedule – The Center for Lifelong Learning.

Buy Your Books for 2023-2024
The bookstore is now live so if you haven’t done so already, please order your student’s books before the school year begins. Click here for a step-by-step process on how to order your books. Note to new students – you will want to make sure you pick up your Dell laptop from the Wheaton Academy IT office and set up your Wheaton Academy email – you will need this email to be able to purchase books.
One-Way Traffic Pattern on Campus
All traffic must enter campus only from Hawthorne and all traffic must exit only onto Prince Crossing. For more information about this traffic pattern, new drop-off/pick-up locations, and parking, please review the resources HERE: https://families.wheatonacademy.org/construction/.
With construction underway, we have a new volunteer opportunity to help with our morning or afternoon drop-off and parking. Sign up to volunteer here.
SWIMMING at Wheaton Academy
Although Wheaton Academy does not have swim practices together, we do go to the Sectional Meet with students who practice and participate on club teams. Girl’s Swimming is in the fall (Sectional Meet on Saturday, November 4) and Boy’s Swimming is a winter sport (Sectional Meet on Saturday, February 17). If your son or daughter is interested in participating, please contact Mr. Mack at firstname.lastname@example.org.
