Wheaton Academy uses the OnCampus portal for classes, communication, and other log-in platforms. Both parents and students have separate log-in accounts.
Within this OnCampus system, families will find direct links to Magnus, Tuition Management, PushCoin, Scoir, student grades, & student schedules. Click here for the login page to OnCampus. If you have issues, please contact Angie Roberts in Student Services.
Students will receive their own OnCampus login information along with their Dell Latitude. Watch a helpful tutorial below on how to log into OnCampus and complete the Magnus Health Forms.
The 2023-2024 school year tuition payments begin in June. Please use your Tuition Management account to submit these payments, through the timing previously selected on your enrollment contract (Annually, Semi-Annually, and Monthly). Parents can access their Tuition Management account through their OnCampus log-in.
If you have questions or would like to change your payment plan, please reach out to Sandy Dede. You may also contact Tuition Management’s Parent Contact Center:
- Monday – Friday 6:00am to 9:00pm
The contact center can: process payments, update bank information, reset passwords, and request one-time courtesy waiver for late payment.
Once you log in to OnCampus, you will have access to the Magnus Portal, which is where we collect all of our medical forms and several of our back to school forms. All forms listed below need to be uploaded/submitted by August 1.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All required Magnus forms MUST be complete BEFORE a student will be allowed to participate in athletics (including tryouts), retreats, or any school sponsored event.
Student Schedules were e-mailed to each family on June 27. The schedules are now also available on OnCampus.
Please note: the order of classes may change as we continue to balance classes.
We use PushCoin, an online debit account, for student lunch payment. It is an optional service we provide to those students who purchase lunches. All enrolled families should have already received a code via email. If you are newly enrolled, you should receive one within a week of enrolling. Check your spam if you don’t see one. Contact Angie Roberts, School Registrar if you’re still unable to locate your registration code.
For any Wheaton Academy related questions regarding lunch, contact Ruth Lindstedt at email@example.com after August 1.
Please note upon graduation or withdrawal, the family can request a refund for the balance in their student’s Pushcoin account. Any Pushcoin accounts which have a balance of $10 or less will be donated to Wheaton Academy’s Annual Fund.
If your student didn’t take Summer Academy, stop by Wheaton Academy IT Department during regular office hours to pick up your student’s computer and login credentials to their student email.
Laptops will be available to pick up in the Front Office on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. beginning July 10th. Once you pick up your laptop, follow the instructions here to set it up.
School IDs can also be picked up at the same time. If you have not already submitted a picture for your school ID, please email Bob Vishanoff.
Please Note: You cannot order books until you have picked up your student’s laptop and log-in information. (Please see the next drop down for more information.)
We have updated our book ordering process! Please visit our Book Rental Page HERE for more information and a step-by-step process.
Please Note: You must use your student’s Wheaton Academy email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to order books. You cannot order books until you have picked up your student’s laptop and log-in information. (Please see the previous drop-down for information on how to pick up your laptop this summer.)
If you have more than one student at Wheaton Academy, you will need each student‘s email with eCampus password. You must log in separately for each student, as their schedule information automatically populates the customized booklist through their email.
Students’ schedules are available in OnCampus. Log in to review the schedule, but please remember the order of the classes may change as we continue to balance classes.
If your schedule says “Contact Student Services” in one of your class periods, please contact Angie Roberts as soon as possible.
We will not make any schedule changes between August 1 and August 24, (the first day of school). Schedule changes after the first day of school will be limited. Please note: dropping a class after the first 10 days will results in a W (withdraw) or WF (withdraw fail) on your student’s transcript.
For step-by-step instructions to access your student’s schedule, locker number, and Advisory Group leader (Advisory assignments will be made in mid-August), click here.
Note: Seniors will select their lockers at their Orientation during the 1st day of school.
Any student driving to campus must have a permit if they wish to park on campus. Applications for student parking permits are now available online. The cost of a parking permit is $75.
Please be aware that the parking fee must be submitted and proof of the student’s driver’s license must be shown to Mr. Ellison in Student Services to be issued a parking permit. Parking permits are only available for students with a valid driver’s license.
After students complete the application, they can meet with Mr. Ellison to both pay the $75 via PushCoin and receive their parking permit starting August 14th.
Note: Campus will be undergoing major construction which may change previous parking patterns. Stay tuned for updated information on traffic patterns, parking lots, and assigned student spots.

As part of our onboarding process for new families you will be paired with a Parent Ambassador who will journey alongside your family during your student’s first year. They will offer helpful tips and reminders of important details or deadlines. The Parent Ambassadors serve as a resource and immediate contact into the Wheaton Academy community.
If your student attended Summer Academy, you should have already received a communication from your Parent Ambassador. All other families will be assigned and notified who their Parent Ambassador is by August.
