As the University of Wisconsin College’s exclusive campus in Northwestern Wisconsin, UW-Barron County (UW-BC) is thrilled to be partnering with North Cedar Academy to offer exceptional students from throughout the world a truly amazing educational opportunity. We are pleased to be a part of this innovative one-of-a-kind educational program that offers qualified students the opportunity to earn a high school diploma from NCA and a University of Wisconsin Associate Degree concurrently.
For nearly 50 years UW-BC has proudly served as Northwestern Wisconsin’s University of Wisconsin campus. Thousands of diverse students from throughout the region and world have discovered the incredible benefits of attending our small yet comprehensive campus. Our students and graduates have told us countless “success stories” regarding the significant impact that the “UW-BC Experience” has made on their personal, educational, and career pathways.
Our students and graduates have told us that UW-BC has had such a positive impact on their educations and lives due to the following key factors:
Exceptional and accessible faculty and staff with the highest degrees in their fields (88% with Ph.D.’s or Masters’ Degrees) who are truly committed to student learning and the individual success of every student . . .
Our relatively small UW campus community – with approximately 600 total students, faculty, and staff – is friendly and welcoming to everyone in our diverse multicultural campus family representing 14 nations . . .
Personal attention from teachers, advisors, and mentors helps each and every student to develop an individualized learning plan and a personalized “pathway” to success in achieving a highly-regarded University of Wisconsin education . . .
Our beautiful campus along the wooded shores of the Red Cedar River in Rice Lake provides an ideal setting for learning, while also offering easy access to educational and cultural opportunities in thriving urban centers in the region, including Minneapolis/St. Paul, Eau Claire, and Superior/Duluth.
We look forward to welcoming the “best and brightest” students from throughout the world to this unique collaborative program with NCA and UW-BC! If you have additional questions about UW-BC, we invite you to visit our website at www.barron.uwc.edu .
