Welcome to Wolcott’s exemplary learning community. Working together, students, faculty, and staff are dedicated to our strength-based curriculum and dynamic student-life culture.
Our small classes (averaging 10 students), expert team of educators, and innovative and responsive teaching methods are the keys to our students’ success. Drawing on our enormous expertise and understanding of best educational practices, today’s curriculum is based on current research and supported by leading-edge technology.
Our academic program extends beyond the classroom. Lessons are reinforced and expanded through routine exploration of Chicago and its many cultural treasures and commercial enterprises. Additionally, we offer daily after-school academic coaching led by our faculty. Academic Coaches are available to assist students with assignments and foster academic independence.
Wolcott maintains high academic standards and offers a rigorous college-prep curriculum that is aligned with the Common Core, College Readiness, and Next Generation Science Standards. While expectations are high, we know that ‘how’ we teach is as important as ‘what’ we teach, and this understanding guides us as we help students work towards their greatest potential.
