Start a Microsoft Imagine Academy

UPDATE:  A Microsoft Imagine Academy program update was posted online at https://dpi.wi.gov/imagine-academy regarding the Department of Public Instruction's role to coordinate this program in Wisconsin.  The Participation Form is no longer accepting responses as the terms of subscription agreement between Microsoft, Certiport and the DPI expire on June 30, 2017.  The content below is being archived as Wisconsin school districts evaluate the opportunity to continue involvement for the 2017-2018 school year.


School principals may complete the Participation Form.  

To support the gathering of relevant information that will be needed to complete the form, a PDF copy of the Participation Form may be downloaded for your internal use.  All submissions must be communicated through the online Participation Form.

The number of available Microsoft Imagine Academies is limited to a maximum of 234 high school site locations. As of May 31, 2016 a total of 189 locations have been designated as Imagine Academy sites.  The number of Microsoft Office Specialist certification tests associated with each Imagine Academy may be variable based upon the anticipated utilization for each site.  Any school submissions received at this time will be considered based upon remaining availability.

Schools may submit a participation form for the 2015-2016 school year or to start the program for the 2016-2017 school year.   Schools that began utilization during the 2015-16 school year will automatically continue subscription services during the 2016-17 school year.  At this time, support for this program has not determined beyond the 2016-17 school year.
