About the Learning Program

At Class ACT, we explore our community and northern Wisconsin through innovative learning experiences. We like to say our "classroom" has no walls.

Class ACT is a full-time school, where students study all academic subjects through student-led and teacher-led projects and other learning experiences. With guidance from an advisor and school counselor, students design their personal learning plans (PLP). Besides projects, students may choose to blend their learning with traditional high school, college, and online courses, and other options.

Students practice the 21st century and global education skills needed to be successful beyond their school years: collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking.
