Glenwood Academy strives to eradicate poverty, injustice and inequity through the power of residential education.

Located in Glenwood, Ill., a south suburb of Chicago, Glenwood Academy is a supportive learning community serving over 150 children ranging from ages 7 to 18. For more than 130 years, Glenwood 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.
