Empowering 21st Century Learners - Anytime, Anywhere!
Wausau Area Virtual Education (WAVE) is a collaboration between the Wausau School District and Wisconsin
Virtual School (a leading provider of online education in the state of Wisconsin).
WAVE is a tuition-free virtual charter school that offers full-time enrollment to students in grades 6-12 living within the state of Wisconsin.
At WAVE, we believe that a high quality education taught by passionate educators is not solely found in a brick and mortar 8am-3pm setting. WAVE students have the opportunity to work at a place and a pace that fits their individual needs.
Students who are driven to succeed, are self-motivated, and who desire freedom and flexibility in their day have found WAVE to be the perfect fit. Students and families whose lifestyles and personal needs do not mesh with the traditional school setting have found that WAVE provides the educational opportunities they desire.
Furthermore, parents and students are assured that they are receiving the type of education one would expect from the Wausau School District: innovative, rigorous, and standards driven.
"I would give my overall experience with WAVE a 5/5, and the list of reasons why is absolutely endless. WAVE has allowed me to plan around my busy schedule, embrace my academic strengths, improve academic performance all around, establish further future plans, choose from a variety of courses, meet new people, have the best possible teachers in each subject, set my own start/end dates...see? What did I say? The list is endless!"

"I hope that every student has the opportunity to experience a course through WAVE at some point in their time in school. It is a rewarding experience that provides a glimpse into the potential of the future of education."
