WAY Eau Claire

Our Program

One size does not fit all. Every student has their own unique interests, skills, and ways of learning. The W-A-Y Eau Claire Program provides a personalized learning experience for students who struggle with traditional high school.

The Eau Claire W-A-Y Eau Claire Program is an alternative approach that encourages self-esteem, independence, and 21st-century skills that will facilitate a college education and career path.

Students in the W-A-Y Eau Claire Program become Researchers and develop customized standards-based learning paths with a Mentor around topics that truly appeal to them.

Each researcher is equipped with a school-owned computer and, if necessary, Internet connectivity within his or her home. They communicate with their Team Leader (Mentors) daily and collaborate with other Michigan and International W-A-Y researchers.

Highly-qualified W-A-Y teachers assess and align all projects according to state content standards, ensuring that each student completes the program with a high school diploma.
