Divine Savior Academy is a Christian academy dedicated to excellence. DSA serves students in PreK-12th grade with college preparatory academics taught by supportive teachers in a Christian environment.
A Tradition of Excellence
Divine Savior Academy is part of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS), one of the largest private school systems in the United States. The WELS has a rich tradition of academic excellence and has operated highly-regarded schools across the United States, the Caribbean, and the world for over 165 years. Currently, WELS churches and associations operate 409 early childhood centers, 318 elementary schools, and 23 high schools across the nation.
On average, students attending WELS schools annually outperform their peers by a considerable margin on national achievement tests. We humbly thank God for His blessings on our schools and are excited to continue this rich tradition of academic excellence on our campuses.
Christian education is Christ-centered education. Our Savior and His love for us are at the heart of all we think, say, and do. All subjects in our curriculum are taught from a distinctively Christian point of view, and all our activities are centered in a Christian environment.
Divine Savior is a place where the Bible serves as the source of truth, and a love for God and His Word is nurtured in our precious children. At DSA, children grow in their relationship with the Lord on their journey toward Christian maturity.
Divine Savior Academy is supported by Divine Savior Church. Our church pastors serve and support the families of Divine Savior with Bible classes, family counseling, and worship services within a loving, supportive community.
Divine Savior Academy graduates have been accepted to many prestigious colleges and universities including Ivy League Cornell University, M.I.T., the University of California-Berkeley, Georgetown University, the University of Miami, and more.
Divine Savior’s rich curriculum is designed with flexibility to meet the needs of each student as it fosters exploration, critical thinking, problem solving, and sound study habits. The ultimate goal is to cultivate and maximize each student’s unique talents and abilities.
Early Childhood: PreK3-1st Grade
In preschool and kindergarten, the classroom is a place for students to learn and explore through active and experiential learning. Concrete, hands-on activities in math, science, and literacy become the basis for elementary school readiness. A teacher and para-educator team in each classroom ensures that all students have the individual attention they need to learn and the social-emotional support they need to thrive.
Elementary School: 2nd-5th Grade
In elementary school, the goal of our curriculum is to provide a solid academic foundation in the math, literature, grammar, writing, science, and social studies. Students also learn problem solving and study habits that will prepare them for middle school and beyond. Enrichment classes are part of every student’s schedule. Art, music, physical education, and foreign language classes provide a complete educational experience for students.
Middle School: 6th-8th Grade
In middle school, our academic program is focused on mastering the core classes in order to prepare students for the rigors of high school.
Critical thinking and problem solving are stressed, as well as mastering independent study skills. The middle school schedule of classes is fully departmentalized and includes enrichment instruction in art, music, physical education, foreign language, and technology.
High School: 9th-12th Grade
In high school, our academic program has three levels: College-Prep, Honors, and Advanced Placement (AP). DSA also offers Project Lead the Way, a nationally-recognized Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics program (STEM). DSA course offerings also allow students to choose a pre-professional track in business, information technology, mass media, science, or the fine arts.
Our high school curriculum encourages all students to realize their individual goals and motivates them to use their God-given abilities. Higher-level thinking skills are practiced with challenging research, speech, and writing assignments across the disciplines to prepare students for college success.
