Upcoming Events

Summer Office Hours
Due to construction, Wheaton Academy’s office hours will be adjusted in the month of July.

All offices will be closed July 4, 5, 12, 19, and 26. There will not be WA Weekly for most of July – it will resume on July 26.

Summer Serve
Summer Serve provides an opportunity to volunteer in a variety of capacities to make an impact on the presentation of our school facilities and help with projects that allow for a smooth transition into the fall. Since most of the academic building will continue to be under construction throughout the summer, we will need some help in early August to get spaces cleaned and ready for the school year to begin! Summer Serve is happening August 5-7. You can sign up for just a day, or come for more. Sign up using this form to join us next week.

General News

Textbook Acquisition for the 2024-2025 School Year
Families are responsible for purchasing or renting books for their student(s). Wheaton Academy has worked with our bookstore company, eCampus, to provide each family a convenient option to purchase or rent books.

Families can shop for each student’s books using eCampus’ “Shop by Schedule” option on their website. Then, eCampus will ship the purchased or rented books directly to each family’s home. Here are some important things to note:

  • New families – If you have not yet received your student’s Dell Latitude or student email address, you may visit Student Services starting July 16 from 8 AM – 4 PM to pick it up.
  • Bookstore opens on July 17
  • All books must be shipped to your home, not Wheaton Academy.
  • Shipping is free from July 17-24. After the first week, families will pay for their own shipping.
  • Please order books by August 14 to ensure arrival before school begins on August 26.
  • You must use your student’s Wheaton Academy email (lastname@walearner.org) to order books.
  • If you have more than one student at Wheaton Academy, you will need each student’s email and must log in separately for each student, as their schedule information automatically populates the customized booklist through their email.

Schedules were sent out to parents of all full-time students on Wednesday. If you did not receive a schedule, please check your junk mail. If there is a contact Student Services in your student’s schedule, please contact Angie Roberts, aroberts@wheatonacademy.org.
