Student Life

A healthy school/life balance is critical to every student’s success.  We believe each student should meaningfully engage in extra-curricular activities, and we mindfully structure our school programs to make that possible.


Student life at Wolcott is a dynamic reflection of the interests of our community. We value the unique contributions that each student brings to our school.


Students participate in our active student government and our dozens of clubs such as DIAL (Diversity, Inclusion, Awareness, and Leadership), Robotics, Anime, Wolves Media, and Dirty Worms. Still others find a place to express their talents on the playing fields through our organized sports teams, or grow the community through their work in our music, art, and theater programs. In addition, all of our students contribute to the world outside of our school through our Service Learning curriculum.


Whether it be through Wolcott night at the Cubs game, Talent Showcase, mentoring bi-lingual elementary school students, or organized social opportunities throughout Chicago, our geographically diverse student body is close-knit, engaged, and connected.
