Note About Incoming Emails from Wheaton Academy
Wheaton Academy uses Active Campaign to send a large portion of our parent emails. Please be sure to check your junk/spam emails periodically, especially at the beginning of the school year when new distribution lists are created. If you find them in junk/spam, mark them as “non-junk” and they should go directly into your inbox with the next bulk email. At the end of July, the new WA Weekly list will be generated, so you will want to check for that as well.

Lost and Found
If you think you may have lost an item during the year stop by and check out our lost in found in the commons no later than Friday, July 8. We will be donating any remaining items that are left after this date.

Graduation Photos & Recap
We’ve compiled a collection of photos, videos, and senior reflections celebrating graduation on this resource page. Molly Grace, a wonderful photographer, and friend of Wheaton Academy provided a gallery of professional photos taken at graduation. The photos are available for you to download from our resource page. Lifetouch Photography also took photos. When those become available, Lifetouch will contact the families of graduated seniors with information on how to purchase.
