It All Begins With a Handshake …

For over sixty years, the Wisconsin Academy school term has begun with a grand handshake line winding across the campus. As the sun sinks low in the sky, students file out from Summerton Hall and shake hands with each teacher and classmate. New friendships begin. Old friends are reunited. The smiles, hugs, and laughter advertise the fact that the WA family is together at last.

As faculty and staff, we are honored and humbled that you have entrusted your students to Wisconsin Academy this year. Please know that we take this responsibility seriously and prayerfully. We know that your greatest joy is to see your children walk in the truth. This too, is our heart’s desire and our greatest goal for each one.

At the beginning of this school year, we reach out our hands to shake yours and say “Hello. We’re Wisconsin Academy. We’re here for you and your student. We’re praying for you and we ask that you pray for us. Let’s work together so that what begins with a handshake will grow into an everlasting friendship with Jesus.”
