Winnebago Lutheran Academy is a nationally accredited high school located in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin that provides excellence in Christian education for students in grades 9-12.

What does your child really need in high school?

Some say the purpose of high school is college; others say it’s about success. Some say it’s to find friends, popularity, or to make the team. Others might argue that it’s just about getting through and getting on to real life. But can’t a high school education be more than that? Doesn’t it need to be?

High school is a critical time in life, and sadly, the world is an increasingly confusing, anxiety-provoking, and overwhelming place for teenagers. More than ever, high school students need a safe place that gives them answers to the big questions they are contemplating.

An education that gives students meaning, belonging & purpose.


At Winnebago Lutheran Academy, we learn God’s saving truths. His words in the Bible provide answers to our deepest questions, help us discover our unique identities, and guide the many decisions we make in high school and beyond. Whatever we do and wherever we go, we learn that our faith, our future, and our meaning is in Him.


WLA exists to serve not only our students, but their families, too, by providing a welcoming, safe, and supportive community. We grow, learn, compete, celebrate, and succeed together as a team, a class, and a school. This togetherness gives us belonging that extends far beyond our classroom walls and lasts well beyond graduation.


Within our supportive community, our faculty and staff encourage each student in his or her unique path forward. WLA celebrates and equips students for all post-high school destinations: military, trade, career, college, ministry, and family. Beyond academics, students are prepared socially, emotionally, physically, and, most importantly, spiritually. It is an education that has purpose for life and eternity.
