Wilmington Christian Academy was founded in 1969 as a ministry of Grace Baptist Church.
We desire to lead our students to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and then assist them in conforming their lives to His image.

School Reviews

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!!
