DUNBAR, Wis. — Northland Scholars Academy had a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Dickinson Area Chamber of Commerce in October to celebrate their newly opened college preparatory boarding school.
Northland Scholars Academy opened Aug. 15 under the executive leadership of President Jeff Kahl, Vice President John Twohig and Head of School Robert King, along with teachers and support staff.
Formerly known as Northland International University, the academy is an international, college-preparatory, dual-enrollment boarding school for high school students in grades 9 through 12. This traditional, conservative American school serves a global constituency regardless of national or faith traditions.
On a 600-acre campus dedicated to Christian camping since 1959, students from around the world also experience the auxiliary camp facilities and activities outside the classroom. The academy actively recruits from 35 countries and anticipates enrollment to reach 400 students by 2020.
The academy features credentialed teachers, emerging classroom technologies, accredited and high-level curriculum choices, AP classes and partnerships with numerous colleges and universities, including Bay College and the University of Wisconsin.
The academy prioritizes enrollment to students who are dedicated to educational excellence and personal development and who desire to impact the world in high school.
Northland Scholars Academy also offers summer and winter language and adventure programs.
