    In times like these, our world desperately needs the promise of a new generation prepared to lead from a biblical worldview.  For more than seventy-two years, we've been about the work of educating, training, and nurturing students for godliness and excellence.  Our students can -- and must -- shape their society in the years ahead!

    We're ready to help:

    The Annual Fund For more than 72 years, Wheaton Christian Grammar School  has been preparing tomorrow's leaders to make a difference in their world for Jesus Christ.  Twenty-five percent of our students receive financial assistance through the annual scholarship fund. 

    Support for the scholarship fund provides an average of 130 students per year with a transformational Christian education.  Your gift makes a difference for tomorrow's leaders!

    Capital Campaign Our new 35-acre campus (occupied fall, 2010) will provide generations of students with spacious, technologically-advanced and efficient classrooms; dedicated art and music facilities; a central Library Media Center; high-school level science lab; physical education facilities, and state-of-the-art media utilization.  But really, our school is about so much more than bricks and mortar; it's about changed lives.

    Endowment Funds



    Designated gifts to these funds honor the legacy of beloved teachers Bea Killip and teacher/principal Marjorie Stockwell, or to help fund the Kaleidoscope Program to assist students with special learning needs.

    Many of our friends have designated memorial gifts to Wheaton Christian Grammar School.  This is a great way to honor a loved one's commitment to Christian education.
