Support Our Students

 “Thank you for understanding that Glenwood is more than a school and teachers, more than a cottage of students and house parents, beautiful grounds and wonderful people; above all else Glenwood is family.”  - Elijah D., 7th Grade

Please stop for a minute and consider how you can make a difference and help a child reach his or her potential and achieve a future of promise. Your gift means that each day a child can count on breakfast before school, improving basic vocabulary or math skills, having a secure place to play, and a warm bed to sleep every night. These things seem so simple, yet for a struggling, disconnected child they are the difference between thriving and failure. When you support a Glenwood student, you are:

  • inspiring student academic achievement and excellence

  • ensuring positive role models and a caring family-like community

  • instilling highly effective life and leadership skills

  • providing essential childhood needs

Your support changes the lives of our students. There are various ways to support Glenwood Academy. For more information, please contact the Development Department at 708-756-6110.
