About our School:

Youth Initiative High School (YIHS) is a developing Waldorf high school located in the southwestern part of the state of Wisconsin.  Viroqua is a town of about 4,000 people in a beautiful rural area with many hills, forests, and small farms.  Our community is an important center of sustainable organic and biodynamic agriculture in the United States.  YIHS has about 70 students and uses a curriculum inspired by the Waldorf pedagogical model of Rudolf Steiner.  YIHS is unique in the way students participate in making decisions within the school.  Students serve on all major decision-making committees and share responsibility for many aspects of the school, including fundraising, policy making, and school maintenance.  Our curriculum also has a strong element on cooking, agriculture, and experiences in nature.  Students who come to YIHS are welcomed as active members of a joyful and hardworking family of students, teachers, parents, and community members.  International students have the opportunity to study English as a Second Language and will have the support of a YIHS teacher for their academic work in all classes.  For more information about YIHS please visit our website at
