Athletics & Activities
WAVE is making history with a first of its kind club: Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). This club, led by advisor Mrs. Dawn Jameson, is the first registered virtual chapter of FBLA in the state of Wisconsin (possibly in the nation).
Students who choose to get involved will be building their college and career resumes with experiences in leadership and community involvement. Additionally, students will have opportunity for travel, scholarship money, and networking with peers and community leaders.
FBLA is not just for business students; it is for all students!
Contact Mrs. Jameson or Mrs. Seymour with any questions.
Full-time students enrolled in the Wausau School District are eligible for WIAA athletic participation. Students are required to check with the athletic director at Wausau East or Wausau West regarding eligibility. WAVE has NCAA approval for those students planning to pursue sports at the college level.
Also, students are invited to participate in clubs and other activities at the local brick and mortar high schools. Many students choose to be involved in community sports, clubs, and organizations as well. WAVE encourages student involvement.
This course is 0.5 credit elective offered through partnership with Wausau Flying Service and Wausau Area Virtual Education (WAVE), and through grant and community funding.
The end goal of this course is that students obtain their private pilot license.
Dual Credit will be granted by Fox Valley Technical College for students continuing their Aviation studies through that program.
Students selected to participate in this course will have classroom instruction taught by Dr. Jerry Reinardy using Angle of Attack curriculum through the WAVE infrastructure. Additionally, these students will complete loggable simulator hours at the Wausau Airport with FAA certified flight instructors using an FAA approved flight simulator.
This course is 18 weeks in length.
