At Whittier Christian Jr High School, our purpose is to partner with families to educate students academically, socially, and spiritually in a Christ-centered atmosphere.
At WCJH, we have one focus - that Jesus Christ is honored in all we do.
Whether in the classroom, in sports competition, or in our dedication to prepare young people to reach their full potential in Christ Jesus, students are surrounded by teachers and peers who are committed to Christ.
With our focus on preparing each student to meet the demands of high school, we tailor the program to meet your student's needs and help them achieve their goals.
We offer five core subjects: Bible, English, Math, History, and Science, with each subject biblically integrated.
Friendships are an integral part of the Junior Higher's life.
These relationships with peers and teachers can last a lifetime.
We have alumni return to see teachers to express their appreciation and tell us of where they are going.
Our desire is that they have a safe place to develop friendships.
At WCJH, we are large enough to offer a complete program of athletic competition, performing arts, fine arts, student leadership and social activities - yet small enough for students to participate in multiple areas of interest.
