Glenwood Academy eradicates poverty, injustice, and inequality through the power of residential education.

Recognized by the State Board of Education, Glenwood Academy is a supportive learning community that offers students and their families a safe haven of combined academic and residential excellence, including a Military Leadership Program that enhances students' leadership skills by instilling structure and collaboration into everyday life. 

Glenwood Academy is transforming lives by disrupting the status quo and providing for deserving students in Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana what no other school in the area can: around-the-clock safety and support.

We are proud of our students and their commitment to achievement.
