Welcome to Northern Lakes Regional AcademyNlRA logo

Northern Lakes Regional Academy is a STEAM charter high school located in Rice Lake, Wisconsin servicing students in and around Barron County.  STEAM refers to Science, Tinkering, Engineering, Aesthetics, and Math.  At our facility at 33 Ann Street we have created a MakerSpace where students will have access to tools and skill development facilitating their ability to tinker and create.  Our goal is to encourage students to utilize science, technology, math, engineering, and the design principles to create innovative means of self-expression while contributing to the community.  NLRA students will become problem solvers, innovators, creators and place-based collaborators.

2018-19 Enrollment Informational Meetings

NLRA is now enrolling students for the 2018-19 school year.  Students and parents interested in making NLRA their school of choice must register for and attend one of the information sessions held at our facility (33 Ann St. in Rice Lake) to learn more about NLRA’s unique learning environment and the application process. Due to recent enrollment trends, we anticipate having to hold a lottery for admittance for new NLRA students in the 2018-19 school-year if the number of applicants exceeds our capacity.  Given the likelihood of this lottery, students are strongly recommended to come  to one of the early information sessions in order to apply by February 15th, 2018.   To register, please go to the information registration link below and fill out the form.
