Dominican welcomes international students each year and is a partner of the Wisconsin International Academy.
Wisconsin International Academy
The Wisconsin International Academy (WIA) is a Total-Care™ residential program for international students enrolled at private and parochial high schools in the metro Milwaukee area to prepare for admission to competitive colleges and universities in America and beyond.
By partnering with local high schools, WIA students are exposed to quality academics, extra curricular activities, and bridging cultures through learning together with American students.
Total-Care™ dormitory and home stay services include local parenting, meals, lodging, transportation, leadership development, college application preparation and community service. WIA provides English language teachers and tutors for students in each of the partner schools.
Headquartered in Wauwatosa, WI, WIA has seven partner high schools in the Milwaukee metro area that together enrolled over 150 WIA students during the 2017-2018 school year.
Given the scale of China, the growing interest of Chinese parents and students, and the success stories of WIA schools and students, WIA has expanded to the greater Chicago metro area and has been recruited to expand to the Iowa City and Cleveland areas in future years.
