WLA recognizes that parents are our students’ first teachers. We are thankful that in nearly 100 years of Christian education, generations of parents have been willing to allow us to assist them in the Christian education of their children. Preparing young minds for a life of service to their Savior, Jesus Christ, is truly a Calling for our teachers, and we are excited to assist you in guiding your children into their adult years.
The WLA Guidance Department specifically exists to prepare our students for life after high school. The first step in this preparation is to assist parents in planning and executing a well-rounded, personalized education that prepares the student for a life of service to Christ in many God-pleasing occupations. As each student progresses through their four year journey at WLA, we will also assist your family as you examine opportunities for further schooling at a college or university, direct entry into the workforce, the United States military, or preparations for direct service to the Church as a pastor, teacher, or staff minister at one of our Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod ministerial training schools. Of additional importance is to provide students with counseling that makes them aware of best practices for financing a higher education through federal or private loans, scholarships, or grants.
From the first day of a WLA student’s high school experience until graduation day, significant time will be dedicated to ensure that the courses they select will not only suit their projected career pathway, but also provide information on alternative pathways should aspirations change along the way to graduation day. WLA also bolsters our course catalog through partnerships with both online high schools and colleges, some of which can provide college credit prior to high school graduation. Wisconsin’s Youth Apprenticeship Program is another method through which our students may receive on-the-job training, receive a paycheck, and earn high school credits toward graduation.
We are confident that the Christ-centered education offered at WLA has much to offer to your family. Please examine our website and contact us for more information.
