what if undiscovered passions are ignited?

A wide-ranging liberal arts curriculum in all divisions makes it possible for students not only to learn, but to discover previously unidentified passions. From the earliest years our students study languages, visual arts, and music, all of which introduce new concepts and help in brain development. Thus opening their minds to the many possibilities in learning. As our students move through our three divisions, they are supported in having the courage to try new endeavors. In this pursuit, students then discover a hidden drive to perform, or a previously unexplored talent on the playing field. Elgin Academy students are encouraged to find these new passions and to then go even deeper in their discovery. By graduation, our Hilltoppers have learned about themselves and what inspires them.

What if we could do even more?

we have witnessed first hand the power of an Elgin Academy education and how each individual student Thrives

Each of Jay and Sarah Wittmeyer’s children, Alysson ’15, Elliott ’17, Annie ’21, and Amity ’23, have had their own unique experience at Elgin Academy that helped them build on their strengths and embrace their weaknesses. While each of their paths may be different, they are all heading in the same direction of being confident leaders. Elgin Academy inspires each student to live up to their fullest potential and supports them on their journey to be creative, courageous, and compassionate individuals.

Please support our Hilltoppers on their journey by donating to the Hilltopper Fund today!
