Great Lakes Academy is a Distance Learning American High School based out of Madison, Wisconsin USA, offering a fully accredited high school diploma. Earning a high school diploma from Great Lakes Academy can be both a fast and affordable way to obtain a quality high school diploma.
At Great Lakes Academy we envision a far-reaching, inclusive learning community which, in addition to providing a solid knowledge base and skill set, will foster independence, critical thinking, creativity and problem solving skills. Our intellectually stimulating, academically challenging, yet supportive alternate learning environment will allow students to improve themselves and realize greater opportunities which will better both themselves and the world at large.
Great Lakes Academy was founded to provide a wide-spread student base with a solid stimulating education using a variety of learning modalities. We believe that there are many effective ways of learning. In addition to the classic brick and mortar classroom model there are, for the self-motivated independent individual, modals which allow a student to work at their own pace and at distant locations. While not for everyone, we believe that this type of virtual, at your own pace learning environment can help those students who might otherwise be unable to obtain a quality high school education due to geography, cost, time constraints or other reasons.
Through the use of a specific curriculum and clear objectives (based upon standard US education requirements), and the assistance of online teachers we believe students can work at their own pace and with a freedom which a traditional classroom based model is not able to provide. In addition this type of environment will promote independence and self-reliance in our students while giving them a sense of the wider world; as they will have the opportunity to interact with students from all geographical locations and walks of life.
We hope to provide this though a user friendly, cost effective medium with allows for universal access.
