West Seneca Christian School

Tel: (716)674-1820
Grades: PK-12 | 140 students
At West Seneca Christian School our vision is to provide a dynamic Christian School as a part of the ministry of our church in order to reach and train the next generation for Christ.
West Seneca Christian School exists to fulfill the great commission by assisting parents of the church and surrounding communities in the biblical training of their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
Our godly and experienced faculty strives to help each student grow to be more Christ like in all of their attitudes and actions.
Respect for authority, self-discipline, dependability, adherence to civil law, respect for property and the rights of others, and development of a keen sense of right and wrong will be taught.
Excellence on the part of all involved in the teaching process is our constant aim.
Although emphasis is placed on academic and spiritual development, there are many opportunities for social and physical development within a Christian atmosphere. Scriptural principles are used to guide these facets of our students school experience as well.
Thus, a Scriptural foundation is the basis upon which the whole student is trained.

School Reviews

Christ-centered worldview, excellent academics with phonics-based reading, great athletic facilities, qualified and caring staff, and reasonable tuition
- Posted by Parent, 03/24/13
As a parent of 3 children in the school, I highly recommend WSCS! Small class sizes allow more one-on-one help, curriculum that challenges the students, teachers and staff that care, test scores that exceed national averages, parents that are involved, and Christ which is placed at the center of it all! Although no school is perfect, we are very pleased with the high academic standards and biblical principles being instilled in our children. College is not too far off, and they will be more than ready!

I am very happy with WSCS. The teachers are qualified and caring and the academics are excellent. The methods used are traditional, using phonics-based reading, which places students extremely high on achievement tests. The academic and athletic facilities are great. There are good athletic, music, art, drama and language programs. The students receive a high-quality education in the type of loving, positive environment that is so needed these days. (The tuition is also very reasonable!)
