Course Selection and Registration

The Registration Process

We are excited to customize your student’s class schedule along with you. We understand that the class selection process can be both exciting and overwhelming. We are here to help you every step of the way.

Our goal is to make certain that your student is properly placed in classes that will provide the best learning environment to increase mastery of learning standards for freshman year. We also want to help students understand how to maximize their time at Wheaton Academy and enroll in the classes that will cultivate passions and prepare them for the future.

Placement recommendations for English, Math, Science, Spanish, and French will be made by Wheaton Academy Department Heads after reviewing information gained through the placement test. A student who has experience in Chinese will be assessed through an interview with our Chinese teacher. Your student’s class placements will be reevaluated each year. If you have questions or concerns about the proposed placement, we will be happy to discuss them with you at this registration meeting.

Finally, the master schedule of class offerings will be released in early summer. Students’ final schedules with class order (periods 1-7) will be available mid to late July.

*Any student with an Individual Service Plan (ISP) will be contacted by a member of our Student Services team to create an ISP once they have registered for classes.

Certified Birth Certificate

Illinois law requires that all enrolled families show a certified copy of the student’s birth certificate to the school. We require submitting the certified birth certificate through Magnus Health Portal.
