Wisconsin Center for Academically Talented Youth -WCATY is an online learning opportunity for higher achieving students who meet the eligibility criteria for participation. Students participating in WCATY are part of an online learning community led by a certified teacher using higher level thinking skills as students converse and learn with each other. The courses are relevant and challenging. Students are encouraged to consider how they interact with the world around them through explorative questioning. WCATY’s research-based strategies for online instruction ignite imagination, evaluation and creative thinking. In addition to the online program, students meet face-to-face with their instructor and the other students in the program three times each year.
