The city of Wheaton is thriving with opportunity. From parks and museums, to beautiful homes and great schools, Wheaton has something for everyone. It’s one of the best places to live in Illinois and is only 30 miles west of Chicago. If you’re looking for that classic suburban feel while still having the ability to work or spend the day in the big City, then Wheaton is the ideal place to move to!
Wheaton College, often called the “Harvard of Evangelical schools” is a school that focuses on giving Christian students a superior liberal arts education. Billy Graham attended the school, and in his honor, Wheaton College created the Billy Graham Center. It’s a museum that is dedicated to the history of evangelism as well as the ministry of Billy Graham. There are exhibits that portray Christian thoughts and ideals, evangelism, missions, and art.
There are several private schools for pre-school through eighth grade including a classical school, a Lutheran school, a Catholic school, a Christian school, and a Montessori school for ages 3-12. St. Francis and Wheaton Academy serve high school students seeking to receive a private education. Of course, there are also many public schools for elementary, middle, and high school located across the city.
