Brave learners, thinkers, and doers. Wildwood teaches students the critical skills they need to transform themselves, others, and our global communities.

Inside Wildwood

Guatemala/Belize International Community Involvement (ICI) Trips

Our ICI program helps students become culturally-aware global citizens. This year our students helped build houses and provided medical supplies to a clinic. Click here to learn more about our ICI program.


Our students—armed with confidence and curiosity—are boldly driven by the vision of a greater world they know they can create.
