“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.
Established in 1948 exclusively for Glenwood students, Camp Getschow gives children the opportunity to develop or enhance their outdoor camping and recreational interests, experiences and abilities in a fun and structured environment. The camp program teaches students skills in archery, swimming, sailing, canoeing, fishing, boating, and identifying wild life, plus evening activities that promote teamwork and sportsmanship. A key component of the camp program is outdoor survival education, which is designed to build students confidence and self-esteem by discovering new abilities. Education focuses on basic survival skills in the wilderness such as creating a bed outdoors, making a fire and using natural resources for survival.
