School Notes:

WCA endeavors to provide each student with an excellent educational opportunity by using a strong academic program that is taught from the Christian worldview.  The small class sizes allow teachers the ability to challenge students to develop their academic gifts and talents through active participation during whole class instruction and discovery learning in small group settings.  Key concepts are reinforced while critical thinking skills are encouraged during each of the core classes, including language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, and Bible.  A safe, nurturing environment combined with high academic standards that are developmentally appropriate encourages students to grow spiritually, academically, and socially.  Additionally, Biblical truths that are integrated into daily lessons provide the foundation to a quality, Christian education.
