For 40 years, WISE seniors of all ability levels have created individualized real-world experiences (WISE projects), exploring their passions outside the traditional classroom.  Over 40,000 WISE graduates at over 100 high schools have learned to collaborate and to work independently, developing organizational, research, writing, and presentation skills as they ignite a lifetime of personal growth.  WISE also offers local community agencies and businesses the opportunity to tap the diverse talents and energy of their high school seniors.   WISE Services (WISE Individualized Senior Experience, Inc.) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization established in 1991 to assist schools in developing WISE programs tailored to their own local needs.

The WISE Model Program

High school students increasingly need real-world skills to succeed in college and careers in order to take on a dynamic, ever-changing world. The WISE Program is the start.
