Northland Pines School District in Eagle River will likely welcome international students on campus beginning next fall.

The Wisconsin International Student Program (WISP) is a partnership between Northland Pines School District, Nicolet College and the University of Wisconsin System.

International students are invited to attend Northland Pines for grades 10-12, earning dual, transferable U-W credits through Nicolet College in junior and senior years. Upon high school graduation, with an American high school diploma and possibly a year year college Associate's degree, students will be guaranteed transfer to U-W facilities.
