Wisconsin International Academy Inc.
Projected 2018 revenue: $10 million
Wisconsin International Academy provides a Total Care 2.0 program that enrolls international students at private and parochial high schools in the metro Milwaukee area to prepare them for admission to competitive colleges and universities in America and beyond.
WIA works primarily with parents in China wishing to make a multi-year educational investment for their children to attend high school and college in the United States. That investment helps students develop English fluency, navigate American education, learn Western culture and prepare them for college admission.
WIA has seven partner high schools in the Milwaukee area that enrolled a combined 160 of its students during the 2016 school year. The company also employs more than 60 people at its headquarters in Wauwatosa.
The company is working diligently to respond to the ever-changing marketplace in China and is forming partnerships with international high schools in China. According to Jian Sun, president of WIA, the partnerships would provide American teachers for students in China, who would later complete a portion of their education through its Total Care 2.0 program.
