Harborside Profile and Credentialing

Harborside Academy is a charter school for grades 6 through 12, located in Kenosha, Wisconsin.


The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and their “Delta Project” decided to fund a new high school, one of 20 new high schools throughout the country, in Kenosha.

Harborside Academy, like all schools that are a part of the Delta Project, uses the Expeditionary Learning Outward Bound (ELOB) model. ELOB schools combine rigorous academic content and real world projects — learning expeditions — with active learning and community service.

In 2012, Harborside Academy merged with Paideia Academy, a charter middle school.
