School Reviews

The experience my children had at WWCA K-12 was exceptional. The atmosphere is loving and Christ centered. The academic preparation gave them confidence and success in college We are convinced that the friends they made at WWCA have significantly influenced them to seek God in their lives. We are so thankful for such a quality school.
