Community Organizations
Parental and community support are a vital component of Wheeler High School. There are six different organizations that commit volunteer and financial assistance to the school.

Academic Booster Club
The Academic Booster Club was founded in 1994. Our mission is “to promote and enhance academic success and achievement for all students at Wheeler High School." The ABC relies on annual 501(c)(3) tax-deductible memberships and donations to fund its activities and programs. Our programs include student recognition (Honor Roll, Academic Letter, CATS Award), college preparation (prep classes, mock SAT/ACT), scholarships and more. Wheeler teachers and clubs can apply for grants from The Academic Booster Club, too. Go to the ABC’s website for more information and a more complete list of the programs available for all Wheeler students.

Wheeler Alumni Association
This 501(c)(3) organization is a charitable organization that raises money for a scholarship fund and holiday fund. The Alumni Association has a database of over 7,000 alumni and help class reunion committees with their reunions. They also pass along information regarding alumni volunteer opportunities such as senior project judging, school clean-ups, etc. The Association sponsors the Band and Football booster clubs and host an all-classes annual homecoming picnic every year during homecoming weekend. These are just a few of the many ongoing projects. Membership is open to all people that attended Wheeler and it is also open to current and former staff and faculty members.

Athletic Association
The Athletic Association is a volunteer organization that assists in the needs of all Wheeler sports.  Past projects include purchasing a popcorn machine for the concession stand and helping to purchase workout equipment for the weight room. They award two scholarships at the end of each school year. The Touchdown Club is a separate booster club specifically supporting Football.

School Council
School councils provide advice, recommendations, and assistance to principals and local boards of education.

The A+ Education Reform Act of 2000 established school councils in Georgia to "bring communities and schools closer together in a spirit of cooperation to:

  • solve difficult education problems,
  • improve academic achievement,
  • provide support for teachers and administrators, and
  • bring parents into the school-based decision-making process
