Our academy is about growth of the inner man. We strive for excellence in our academics, with certified teachers and traditionally taught classes augmented with computer-based learning experiences. While our academic program is strong, our focus is on reaching and strengthening the heart of each student. Being a boarding academy the students are impacted with the structure and discipline of the school time and their hearts are pursued from the time they get up in the morning until the lights are turned out each night. Each day is full of character building opportunities and worldview training.
Our core classes are traditionally taught, while our electives are computer based. The traditionally taught classes use curriculum from Bob Jones Press, Abeka Books, and Saxon Math. Because of the small classroom and the varied grade levels, some subjects are taught generally to all the students and grade specific work and requirements are assigned. Each student is then able to produce at his grade level and his academic abilities are challenged. While our main goals are to impact the students’ hearts, we also want each of them to progress academically while they are with us. We meet the requirements of the State of Wisconsin for the hours and classes that we teach. Though we are a private boarding school, our credits transfer into both public and private schools. Students have completed their senior year with Victory, graduated, and have been able to continue their education by going on to colleges, universities, trade schools, and the military.
Accreditation and Credits
Just a hundred yards from offices is our school with two classrooms and small gymnasium. We use state-of-the-art technology to enhance the learning experience by utilizing laptops, tablets, and touch screen computers to allow each student to have real-time access to his assignments, counseling, discipline, and progress. This also allows teachers, staff, and parents back at home to view records and counseling comments in near real-time.
Our academy holds membership with the American Association of Christian Schools. Our classroom is divided into Jr. High and Sr. High levels and core classes are taught traditionally. Remedial and excelling classes are taught with computer-based coursework through BJU Press and Abeka curriculum. Tutors are available for those needing extra help with their academics. Credits are transferable where private school credits are accepted. Diplomas issued are accepted by the military and most colleges. Students who complete our program have stronger study skills and students who arrive academically behind have the opportunity to move forward and gain some momentum for getting back to their schooling at home.
A Typical Day

By 8:15 the personal devotions and discipleship meetings are starting. School starts at 9 o’clock. Students arrive back home by 5pm and shower and prepare for dinner at 5:30. Evenings vary with activities, work projects, church and youth activities. Bedtime is usually 10pm. Saturday is a little more relaxed with an 8:30 wakeup time and more extensive cleaning and upkeep of the house. Most of the day is filled with outdoor projects and activities. Sunday is all about church and fellowship. It is a day to relax and enjoy a few activities.
