5.0  5/17/2016
Wilmington Christian Academy has the entire package...academic rigor, fine arts programs, student life initiatives, athletic sports programs starting in K4 through the JV & Varsity level. They also strongly encourage community and volunteer service projects! Our son has flourished since arriving at WCA and I honestly can't see him anywhere else!! So blessed to have him here!!
