• Westminster Academy for International Studies

    start here    



    To be a high-performing International Studies School that prepares effective learners for a global economy. 


    Star Here, Go Anywhere! We work every day to prepare students to be whatever they want to be, where ever they want to be it!




    WAIS’ work is to prepare students to be global community members: this means preparing students for their academic and vocational futures as well as preparing them to be positive citizens of the world. The vision “Start here, go anywhere” means that we are training our students to be anything they would like to be when they grow up, anywhere they would like to be! In order to accomplish this vision, the staff at WAIS has implemented a rigorous competency based education system complete with an international studies focus and world language instruction in Spanish and Mandarin Chinese. In addition, we believe in empowering students and strive to help our students advocate for themselves academically and socially, track their progress in these areas and set achievable goals.

    The end result, we hope, are students that are prepared for their high school experience after leaving our building and will take the important lessons learned here beyond the k-12 world into college, the work place and beyond.
