Westonka Area Learning Academy
The Westonka Area Learning Academy (WALA) is a partner with Intermediate District 287 and serves students who have been identified as at risk. The WALA program fosters a structured environment that helps students increase their basic skills, connects them to their community, and challenges them to be life-long learners. Innovative curriculum, a low student-teacher ratio, a caring, enthusiastic staff and a safe classroom environment help students build self-respect and create options for their futures.
A key aspect of WALA is an incentive program known as “WALA BALL”, which emphasizes attendance and behavior, and utilizes a service learning component as a way to gain additional credit. Students gain valuable experiences volunteering in the community and attaining career information while participating in the outings.
Academic requirements are fulfilled periods 14, and elective opportunities are available periods 58 in the mainstream. Interested students must contact the guidance department or the program coordinator to determine eligibility.
