Wheaton Academy to Join New Conference in 2023-24
Wheaton Academy will be leaving the Metro Suburban Conference (MSC) in 2023-24. Current conference members announced they leaving the MSC for the Chicago Catholic League (CCL) after next year and we felt it was the right time to join together with other faith-based schools to form a new conference that better aligns with our mission. Beginning in the 2023-24 school year, we will be joining the newly formed Chicagoland Christian Conference (CCC). The conference will be home to nine total schools (eight for football): Aurora Christian, Bishop McNamara, Chicago Christian, Chicago Hope Academy, Christ the King, Marian Central Catholic, St. Edward, Timothy Christian, and Wheaton Academy. The conference members will compete in over 20 IHSA sports and activities. We are extremely excited to maintain many long-standing rivalries and look forward to creating new matchups within the new conference. The CCC will bring together faith-based schools from six counties around the Chicagoland area. It will promote a balanced and competitive environment while placing a special emphasis on building the whole individual in mind, body, and spirit in glory to God.
For the 2022-23 school year the MSC will remain intact with the exception of Rosary, who will be joining the Greater Chicagoland Athletic Conference (GCAC). We look forward to finishing our last year as a member of the MSC but couldn’t be more excited for our participation in the Chicagoland Christian Conference for many years to come.

WA Appreciation Team
Our team is made of a group of parents who desire to encourage, bless, and appreciate our faculty and staff at two specific times during the year. During finals week in December and again with an Appreciation Luncheon in April to honor and thank everyone for a fantastic school year. It is only possible to provide these wonderful events on behalf of all families because of your generous gifts. We ask for sponsorship in the Fall for the Christmas event and in late Winter/early Spring for the Appreciation Luncheon. Thank you to the families who helped make December’s event possible.
We are now preparing and planning for the Spring Appreciation Luncheon. Might you consider sponsoring a Faculty/Staff member for the Appreciation Luncheon on April 22nd? Click here to sponsor and learn more details.
