The population of the Beaver Dam area is about 21,000 people centered on the southeast shore of Beaver Dam Lake. Quality of life has always been one of the chief themes of city officials, civic leaders and the business community in Beaver Dam. This includes stewardship of man-made Beaver Dam Lake, one of the state’s largest lakes with 41 miles of shoreline. Over the past century the community has established parks on the lake and along the Beaver Dam River. The community currently has 20 municipal parks.

Neighborhood elementary schools, a centrally located Middle School and High School enable most students to walk to school, providing easy access for parents and families to participate in school activities and programs. In addition, the community is served by excellent private Lutheran and Catholic grade schools and the K-12 multi-denominational Central Wisconsin Christian School in neighboring Waupun. Beaver Dam is also home to the nationally recognized Wayland Academy, the oldest co-educational college preparatory high school in America.

Beaver Dam provides all the necessities of life, plus some of life’s luxuries. Its proximity to the largest cities in Wisconsin provides easy access to the most metropolitan attractions, an international airport and collegiate and professional sporting events. The friendly, welcoming, small town atmosphere of Beaver Dam endears itself to new residents, and makes it a comfortable place to live for generations of families.
