Northland College was established in 1906—the offspring of an institutional ancestor, the North Wisconsin Academy, which was founded in 1892. The founders of the Academy were eager to provide an educational opportunity for residents of the region, but more than this, they sought to provide an environment for learning that would emphasize Christian moral and spiritual values.
We have over 40 academic programs, each combining a distinct liberal arts education with critical “green skills” that employers and graduate schools are looking for.
