Women’s Prayer
Tuesday, August 25
1:45 p.m.

We are excited that the Wheaton Academy Women’s Prayer Group will be meeting during the 2020-2021 school year with a few modifications.  The first gathering will be on August 25 at 1:45 p.m. for an outside prayer walk around the Wheaton Academy campus.  (The prayer walk will take place unless it is storming.  Please plan to meet on the lawn east of the Fine Arts Center.)

Meetings will begin on Tuesday, September 15, from 1:45 – 2:45 p.m. While the weather is pleasant, meetings will take place outside.  Please bring your lawn chair or a blanket and plan to meet on the lawn to the east of the Fine Arts Center.  Please keep in mind: While meetings are planned to take place outside, a location alternative inside the building will be available.  Social distancing guidelines will be observed, and masks are required when entering the buildings.  

Questions or special prayer requests should be directed to Mary Miller at 847-404-7529 or

Schedule Changes
Thank you for your patience with schedule changes. Please note that due to Covid-19 guidelines, we have very little flexibility to change schedules as we have classrooms set up for all desks to be 6 feet apart, which limits the class size. We will work with each student individually on schedule changes and accommodate them as we are able. We also appreciate your grace as our registrar continues to adjust schedules to make sure all students can be appropriately distanced per the Covid-19 guidelines.
