School Reviews

We love the academic, spiritual and social progress seen in our children during the years of enrollment at Wanchese Christian Academy. The focus is on God and others.... not self, yet their individual talents are fostered!

we just completed preK and Kindergarten here and we could not be more pleased. Our children have learned and grown so much in the loving caring environment at WCA under the guidance of the school principal Mrs. Rachel, and their teachers this year. We really look forward to another great year coming up!

I attended and graduated from this school. I have never benn limited in any areas of my life as a result of being a WCA graduate. I feel that its reputation and education have helped me more that if I had attended a public school. I am currently sending my children to this school and as a parent I am even more pleased. I would recommend this school to anyone who values private/Christian education.

We chose Wanchese Christian Academy, because we want "Christianaity" to be the normal, rather than an optional way of living. The instructors teach truth, in the most loving environment. If someone is going to have my kids for the majority of the day - I want to filter that information in the right direction. Thanks WCA for your investment in my children's life!
