About Great Oaks Wilmington

Great Oaks Charter School – Wilmington is our network’s newest charter school.  GO-WIL started with a splash in 2015.  We have grown steadily each year and are excited to add an 8th grade class at the start of the 2017-2018 school year.

Our school is located in the Community Education Building (CEB) in downtown Wilmington.  We are thankful to Bank of America, who donated this 11-story, 281,000 sf facility to Wilmington students.

GO-WIL strives to cultivate a joyful learning atmosphere, and our students enjoy a variety of extracurricular activities, including a theater program and a championship basketball team.  If you would like to talk about how your child can become a part of GO-WIL, please contact us.

Unparalleled Individualized Instruction

In addition to a rigorous array of classes, every Great Oaks student receives two hours of small-group tutoring from our Tutor Corps. Every day. Our tutoring model enables students to catch up if they have fallen behind and pushes them to go even further when they’re excelling academically. Furthermore, our tutors serve as mentors to our students, doing everything they can to encourage success both in and outside of the classroom.

Commitment to Family and Community Engagement

Great Oaks parents and guardians are essential members of our community. As such, we regularly invite them to a variety of school events, ranging from report card conferences to ceremonies to honor students’ success. Additionally, our tutors and staff members regularly call home to give updates on student progress.
