Glenwood’s high quality individualized academic and boarding program reflects our mission to serve good children from challenging circumstances and provides them with opportunities to grow and succeed. Glenwood’s academic and boarding program complement each other around the needs of the students. Teachers, houseparents, and administrative staff work together to comprehensively address any issues a child might have in school or in the boarding program.
Since 1887, Glenwood Academy has provided a relevant and necessary service to children. The Academy owes its longevity and continuing support to its ability to adapt to changing times and the emerging needs of society.
Three examples of Glenwood’s ability to meet the changing needs of children and their families include: academic program, boarding program, enrichment and recreation activities.
