Upcoming Events

Business & Innovation Program Volunteer Kick-Off Event
Wednesday, August 4
6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
A recent Gallup poll suggests that many students in the U.S have entrepreneurial aspirations. 77% of students in grades 5-12 say they want to be their own boss, 45% say they plan to start their own business, and 42% say they will invent something that changes the world. At Wheaton Academy, we are preparing Christian leaders to have this type of impact.

We need your help! As a coach, subject matter expert, mentor, or Intern Host, you can make a difference by sharing your expertise and partnering with us to bring real-world business experience and a biblical worldview to our students as they explore. Please mark your calendars for a Business & Innovation Program Volunteer Kick-Off Event in the Library on Wednesday, August 4, from 6:00-8:00 p.m.

We are excited to develop the Christian business leaders of the future and hope you will partner with us.  Please feel free to reach out to pstrzalka@wheatonacademy.org should you have any questions at any time.

Your gift on behalf of our mission directly impacts our students as they are molded and shaped into young men and women who understand every discipline in light of the truth of the Gospel. Thank you for partnering with us in our mission as the Lord leads you. Click here to provide a gift.

Guitar Lessons
If your son or daughter is interested in taking guitar lessons at Wheaton Academy after school, please click here for more information or contact Evan Jasper at ejasper@wheatonacademy.org or 630-520-1478.

OnCampus Login Changes
Parents, on July 8, your OnCampus login was changed to be more secure.  You should have received an email from wheatonacademy@myschoolapp.com with an invitation to create a Blackbaud ID. Please follow those directions.  OnCampus remains the same; it is only your login password that will need to be reset.  If you encounter difficulties or need the invitation re-sent, please contact Bob Vishanoff bobvishanoff@wheatonacademy.org.

Book Lists for Families who OPTED-OUT        
If you chose to OPT-OUT of Wheaton Academy purchasing your book order for you, and plan to rent/buy your own books, the book lists for courses are available on our website. You will need to go to Families and click on the eCampus Bookstore link. Once you get to the bookstore, choose the ORDER NOW box and search for your student’s course names to see which books are needed for your student’s schedule. You do not need to rent/buy the books from eCampus. However, this is the location where you will find the books for each course. Important Note: You need to rent/purchase all books listed even if they are listed as Optional. The Optional reference is an internal note for the book company, not for our families to think the books are optional. Please contact Jenn Trott if you have questions.

Fall Schedule Changes
The deadline for schedule changes is August 4. Student Services will not make any more schedule changes until after the first day of school, and those changes will be limited. Contact Angie Roberts in Student Services to make any changes or work out conflicts.
