School Notes:

     Woodcrest Christian School (WCS) provides a ministry of Christ-centered Academics for grades 7-12 that is evangelical, interdenominational, co-educational, and college-prepatory.  The WCS faculty instructs and trains students in Godly wisdom, Christian character, responsible stewardship, and unselfish service.  The core of every academic subject is founded on Jesus Christ, "in whom are all treasures of wisdom and knowledge." (Colossians 2:3)  The academic program provides a curriculum that meets or exceeds the entrance requirements of Christian colleges and universities and the University of California.  
   
    Located on its 30- acre campus in the City of Riverside, WCS was opened in 1973 as an extension of our elementry campus, Riverside Christian Day School (K-6) which was founded in 1948.  These schools form the Woodcrest Christian School System (Kdg.-12).
