Mission Statement

The Winchester Academy, located in Waupaca, Wisconsin, is a center for lifelong learning. It was inspired by the tradition of the Scandinavian Folk Academy. Our purposes are three-fold:

  1. To enrich the life of the community by providing intellectually stimulating and informative programs;

  2. To serve the public's wish for continued intellectual growth;

  3. To provide a lay audience for Wisconsin's scholars and others with developed expertise to share their knowledge and enthusiasm outside traditional structure of school and college.
