WLA Mission Statement

Winnebago Lutheran Academy exists to glorify God by nurturing the growth of every student to live as Christ’s child within their families, congregations, and communities.

Please learn more about our ministry and mission using the menu on the left.

What will you find at Winnebago Lutheran Academy?

You will find family.

You will find an excellent, well-rounded high school Christian education that is distinctly Lutheran–based on a firm trust in Jesus Christ, our only Savior from sin.

WLA offers individual guidance to help your student select and prepare for a college or a career. Graduating seniors from WLA are well prepared to pursue:

  • college
  • technical school
  • workforce
  • military
  • admission to Martin Luther College, the WELS School of Ministry

WLA students have an average ACT score of 22.7 to 23.9 — higher than the state average of 20 to 22. (Wisconsin is among the highest-scoring states in the nation on the ACT.)

WLA offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities, including Sports, Music, Theatre, Forensics, student organizations, and student events that exist to pique the interests of any student.

The teen years are filled with challenges to a young person’s values and faith. At WLA, The promises of Christ are at the heart of every class and every activity. Students learn to examine and face life’s problems in the light of God’s Word. Here, students are nurtured spiritually, intellectually, and physically. Here, Christian faith is practiced and celebrated in the classroom, on the athletic field, and in all activities.


What will you take with you when you leave Winnebago Lutheran Academy?

Students at WLA are not immune from the ordinary temptations of being a teenager, but they have a crucial advantage: They are learning life’s lessons in a caring, forgiving Christian atmosphere. They are learning to apply the lessons of the Gospel to day-to-day issues and decisions.

WLA Alumni leave the halls of our school with more than a strong academic education.  They leave with preparation for good citizenship, and the ability to apply the lessons of God’s Word to everyday challenges and decisions.

At a time when a families values are challenged in increasing ways it is important to ask: “Where can my children receive a highschool education where strong Christ-centered values will be upheld and encouraged?”  Look no further than WLA.
