With WSHS as partner in this new initiative, your student may apply to be part of the REACH program. REACH, with its elective classes and exposure to area businesses, is designed to prepare students for career and college readiness after graduation from high school. Students must apply to be part of REACH, and we are encouraging your child to consider being part of the this program.

Winona Senior High School - in collaboration with the Winona Area Chamber of Commerce, Minnesota Chamber of Commerce, Winona State University College of Business, Winona Area Chamber of Commerce Business Education Networks, and Minnesota State College Southeast - will focus on our 11th -grade students who are short credits, and may require additional motivation and individualized attention in order to graduate on time.

Through the REACH program, the high school will implement course work that will both meet the career goals and needs of our students and help develop a strong workforce for our local businesses. In addition to course work that will allow for college credits, students will gain valuable opportunities to visit local businesses, along with having face to face meetings with a wide variety of employees in our local workforce, helping the students develop a strong understanding of what careers are available.
