Welcome to Glenwood Academy

Established in 1887, Glenwood Academy is changing the lives of at-risk children. Glenwood is the Chicago area’s only boarding academy for disadvantaged children. Yet, it’s so much more than an academy. It’s a safe, nurturing environment where kids live, learn, and succeed.
