"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid" ~ Albert Einstein.
At EEA, we feel that many times in education, we measure our students' abilities in this type of misdirected manner. As a consequence, students do not learn to celebrate and rely on their strengths or recognize their own ability to learn. It is our hope that the students at EEA learn that there are great things about being a fish. It is also our hope that our fish become salmon with the strength to swim upstream and to make a difference for the people they love and for the world.
WELCOME TO EEA'S HOMEPAGE
The Excel, Enrich, Achieve (EEA) Learning Academy is a resource in the Wausau Public Schools, for students who have not found success in a traditional setting. If your student could benefit from an alternative, more individualized form of learning, we invite you to look into our program and explore the opportunities we can offer you and your child.
