If you are entering high school in September 2015, and this sounds like you, you might be a perfect candidate for the Wausau Engineering and Global Leadership (EGL) Academy!

This innovative high school, located on the campus of Wausau East High School but separate in its mission and philosophy, is providing an experience like nothing that has been offered in Central Wisconsin before. For more information about Wausau EGL Academy check out this site or call 715-261-0625.   Students outside of the Wausau School District may choose to attend Wausau EGL Academy through open enrollment, February 2nd through April 30th, 2015. If more students apply for EGL Academy than places are available, a lottery will be used to select Academy students. Notification of enrollment will be made in late spring; therefore students should complete course enrollment at their home high school as well.
