Learn from a whip-smart, super-kind Christian mentor

Mentors are models of Christian adulthood: young teachers, pastors, entrepreneurs, artists, or grad students at schools like MIT, Stanford, Oxford, Duke, and Yale. They lead deep discussions of big ideas, and they form a personal relationship with each student.

Grow in a cohort designed for lifelong friendships, with fewer than ten students per mentor

Every year, students say that the community they formed with their cohort was different: deeper, more helpful, more alive. And that’s no surprise. Our staff is carefully trained to help students form Christlike relationships, right from day one.

There’s nothing like The Academy


"I've never seen anything like it."

For several years now I have seen up close what the The Academy experience has done in the lives of students who attend. My conclusion? I've never seen anything like it. Wheatstone is unique, stimulating, transformative, and has a lasting impact on the minds and character of those who take the plunge.

"This is the way we will transform our culture."

Wheatstone is doing something very important - helping young Christians grow into adulthood such that their faith is fully integrated into their lives. I'm particularly excited about the way that Wheatstone calls young people to a life of holiness - this is the way we will transform our culture.
