Glenwood Academy

Glenwood, IL

Glenwood Academy strives to eradicate poverty, injustice, and inequity through the power of residential education. Set on 120 acres with significant green space, Glenwood Academy is a school that provides residential life programs for challenged children. The school is in Glenwood, a south suburb of Chicago. It serves over 150 children ranging from ages 7 to 18. Their program provides the children with food and shelter; they also provide children and families with support for their healing, growth and academic success.

For it is in giving that we receive.
