You face many choices today for the education of your child.
Public school, home school, private school... you want what is best for your child, and you have the responsibility to "train up a child in the way he should go." In considering a Christian education, Westlake Christian Academy stands ready to come alongside you and assist in the task of making disciples, prepared and ready for service in our Lord's kingdom.
We offer a faculty that shares your priority for building up students in their Christian faith in a world that has become increasingly hostile to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The foremost goal of WCA is to become the first choice of parents and students seeking a Christ-centered elementary and secondary education where the truth of the Bible is integrated into every aspect of school life.
We aim to teach students to think, speak, write, and act in a Christian manner in preparation for life's challenges and to model Christ in their school, church, workplace, and community.
