2023-2024 Student Schedules
Mrs. Roberts will be sending an email out today to parents/guardians of returning students with the classes your students selected for the 2023-24 school year. If you did not receive the email, please check your spam/junk inbox. Once the master schedule is finalized in a few weeks, Mrs. Roberts will send another notification when schedules can be viewed in OnCampus.
REMINDER: Return Your Student’s Book Bundle
Thursday & Friday, June 1 & 2
7:30 am – 12:00 pm
If your family rented the book bundle for your student’s textbooks this year, parents and students received an email last week. This email listed the books that need to be returned at the end of the school year. Please make sure your student returns their books to avoid a non-return fee. Books must be returned on either Thursday, June 1 or Friday, June 2 in the Commons. Please see Jenn Trott with questions.
You may also return your books on your own. For directions on how to do this, please click here.
UPDATE: Book Acquisition Progress Changes for the 2023-2024 School Year
The book acquisition for the 2023-2024 school year will be different than previous years.
There will no longer be a book bundle option for families. Families will now be responsible for purchasing or renting books for their student(s). Wheaton Academy has worked with our bookstore company, eCampus, to provide each family with 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. For full details on this new process click here. The bookstore for next year opens July 12.
We believe this option will provide an economical and streamlined process for families. Thank you for navigating this change with us. Please see Jenn Trott with questions.
Friends of Wheaton Academy Israel Trip
We are planning an adult trip to Israel in the Spring of 2024. If you are interested in attending, please see the letter from Steve Bult by clicking here.
Because Wheaton Academy places a high value on parent feedback, we are conducting a parent survey. This year, we have once again enlisted the help of SchoolRIGHT to complete a CONFIDENTIAL PARENT SURVEY for our school community. The survey was launched on Tuesday morning, May 2, from email@example.com. If you haven’t received it, please check your spam folder. The survey will only be open for a short time, so please take a few minutes to share your thoughts! Note: Survey invitations are email specific and will not work if forwarded to another email address.

Final Exam Preparation
Only two weeks left! Why do things seem to quickly fall apart as the end of a semester approaches? For many students, managing both current and make-up work, preparing for exams, and completing big projects can be overwhelming and add significant stress heading into final exam week. And if that wasn’t enough, the nicer weather encourages us to spend more time outside instead of staying inside and getting our work done. If you want to get a head start on preparations for the final stretch and finish the year strong, visit our website at www.thecenterforlifelonglearning.org to sign up to work with one of our executive function coaches!
ACT/SAT Prep Class
Registration for the JUNE ACT/SAT Prep Class is now open. This group class will be a comprehensive overview of both college admission tests and will include tips and strategies as well as how to apply them to practice test questions. There will be some homework given. Materials will be provided.
Dates for the class: 9:00 am-11:00 am Mondays and Wednesdays in June (June 12, 14, 19, 21, 26, 28)
Register at thecenterforlifelonglearning.org. Your payment is your registration.
