Our daughter just completed kindergarten at West Shore Christian Academy, and we couldn?'t be more pleased with her experience there. She had a fabulous teacher who was exactly the type of Christian role model we would want in her life. Her teacher was creative, fun, and serious about her own faith. She challenged her students to live wholeheartedly for God and used Scripture to guide them through the difficult situations young kids find themselves in with friends??sharing, taking turns, being patient, etc. We saw tremendous growth in our daughter??not just as she learned to read, write, tell time, count money and other academic things, but as she developed as a kind, compassionate, praying little girl with a generous servant?'s heart. We are certain that WSCA is a very worthwhile investment.

My children love West Shore Christian Academy. The low student/faculty ratio gives them individualized attention in the classroom. In addition, because the teachers and administrators know the students, my children have been granted the opportunity to be involved in the athletic teams, service projects, speech/debate team, student government and robotics. In particular as a parent I like the emphasis that is is placed on educating the "whole student. The academic standards are high and there is quality education from an academic stand-point; however, students are are also challenged to grow in their character, faith and socially.
