A Letter From our Head of School

Welcome to Wisconsin Virtual Academy (WIVA)!  

At our schools, we provide students enriching and personalized learning experiences. We aim to inspire our students, while we build on their strengths and support them in reaching their fullest potential. Our programs are online and in-person. We offer many face-to-face opportunities such as: hiking/nature trips, school outings, and educational field trips. We plan year-round interesting and enjoyable activities/events, bringing families and staff together, across our great state.

As the Head of Schools, and a Wisconsin native, I know we find strength in our communities. With our state-wide virtual program our community includes every corner of Wisconsin. Our highly trained, certified teachers keep our students motivated, excited and moving toward their goals. Our staff empower students to think critically, achieve academic success, and prepare for college, career, and life.  

We are a tuition-free virtual public charter school, and at Wisconsin Virtual Academy (WIVA), Destinations Career Academy of Wisconsin (DCAWI), and Insight School of Wisconsin (ISWI), we will work toward providing the tailored support your child needs to thrive.  In 2020, our student body grew to over 4,000 students with over 4,000 different reasons to be a part of our learning community. In partnership with families, WIVA’s personalized learning approach meets the individualized needs of every student. We are building the citizens of the 21st century and with us we will truly help your child leave a mark on the world. 

Join our state-wide family of legacy learners at WIVA, DCAWI and ISWI.  I hope to hear from you soon.
