Philosophy

At The Willows, our academic mission is to take young women who are:

  • On pace for college and prepare them for a competitive college
  • On pace for a competitive college and prepare them for an elite college
  • On pace for an elite college and prepare them for a choice of elite colleges

We challenge every student to reach her full potential.

Results

Few schools can match The Willows’ academic results:

  • Average ACT score of 28
  • Approximately 80% of students take AP exams
  • Approximately 70% of graduates enter college with AP credits
  • An average of 20% of students are recognized as Illinois State Scholars

It is no wonder that, over the past several years, as many as 20% of The Willows students have been admitted to schools as competitive as The University of Notre Dame, Northwestern University, The University of Chicago, Washington University, Stanford, Air Force Academy, and the Ivy League colleges. And approximately half of our students achieve the qualifications required for admission to the University of Illinois – Urbana/Champaign.
