Small Learning Communities

Would you like to be a part of a smaller group of students who work closely with a smaller group of teachers?  If your answer is yes, you may want to enroll in one of Madison's small learning communities.  If your interested in computers, engineering, design or automotive technology, you may want to join the Design and Technology Academy (DaTA).  If music, film or theatre is what excites you, consider Madison's School of the Arts (SOTA).
