Wolcott College Prep serves high school students of superior to average cognitive abilities with learning differences who can contribute to, and flourish in, our strength-based, collaborative community.


Our students typically have well-developed reasoning skills and one or more language-based learning disabilities in reading, written expression, and mathematics, or attention deficit disorder (predominantly inattentive type). We recognize that specific Learning Disabilities often exist with processing and executive functioning challenges. Wolcott School is not designed to meet the needs of students with primary emotional or behavioral challenges.


We serve a socio-economically diverse community of students living across Chicagoland. Through tuition assistance, eligible students are able to attend Wolcott.
