Abiding Word is part of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) school system, the 4th largest private/parochial school system in the country. We are one of around 350 schools in a school system across the 50 states. WELS is rooted in a deep tradition of serving others. Our school seeks to share the Gospel of Jesus with students and their families all the while offering an excellent education that prepares students for high school and beyond.
Our school has achieved exemplary accreditation from the Board of Directors of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod School Accreditation (WELSSA). Schools working toward accreditation must complete a comprehensive self-study, host a site visit team of educators outside the school every five years, and develop and implement a school improvement plan to maintain accreditation. The school files an annual report detailing their progress in meeting their goals and staying in compliance with the WELSSA standards. WELSSA is a member in good standing of the National Council on Private School Accreditation (NCPSA).
