Glenwood Academy nurtures and educates good kids from challenging situations by inspiring excellence, building character, and strengthening community. Located in Glenwood, Ill., 35 miles south of Chicago, Glenwood Academy is a supportive learning community serving over 150 children ranging from ages 7 to 18. Nearly 100% of our children live at or below the poverty line and 92% come from single parent households. For more than 130 years, Glenwood Academy has fought to eliminate the impact of trauma and miseducation on children's lives. We are not the last resort for "bad kids," but rather, the first choice for scholars and tomorrow's leaders who will make an incredible mark on this world.
