WELCOME TO WOLCOTT

At Wolcott, we strive to create a welcoming admissions process for all prospective students and families, and together explore the benefits of a Wolcott education.

On behalf of the entire admissions team, I thank you for your interest in Wolcott. As you browse our website and learn more about the school, you will get a sense of our commitment to providing an exemplary high school program for students with learning differences that is tailored to the strengths and aspirations of each student. You will also gain a better understanding of our rich academic and extracurricular offerings and our dynamic and diverse community.

I encourage you to tour our school, observe a classroom, meet a faculty member, or challenge us to a game of ping-pong. Only by visiting Wolcott will you fully understand what we mean when we say that Wolcott aims to teach to the strengths of our students, reduce roadblocks to learning, and support our students and faculty alike as they strive to achieve excellence.

We look forward to meeting prospective students and families. Feel free to contact me with any questions at 312.610.4925 or rspiro@wolcottschool.org.

WHO WE SERVE

Wolcott School serves high school students of superior to average intelligence with learning differences who can contribute and flourish in our strength-based, collaborative community. Our students often have a specific learning disability or an executive functioning challenge and have yet to reach their potential in traditional educational programs. Our program is not designed to meet the needs of students with primary emotional or behavioral challenges.
