The La Crosse Design Institute (LDI) is an innovative school based on creativity and imagination that allows students to control their own education with help from advisors.


LDI inspires students to acquire skills that will drive successful 21st century leaders and problem-solvers in becoming responsible citizens with strong values and integrity.


LDI aims to guide students in designing a better future one project at a time. Students will become more accountable, better problem solvers, and more informed citizens as they work through the design process to complete individual and group projects. We believe in every student’s ability to succeed.


We emphasize: authentication, personalization, and community-involved education!
