- LWA's Christ-centered curriculum takes His love beyond the chapel and into the classroom, incorporating Christ's love and learnings into every subject. LWA's curriculum includes proven learning programs A Beka, Saxon and Bob Jones that provide an intellectually and spiritually stimulating education preparing students for high school and beyond. LWA strongly believes in learning beyond the classroom and offers a variety of classes at every grade level and in preschool to stretch the body as well as the mind, including: physical education, art, drama, music, computers, musical theater and Spanish. Additionally, LWA's library, computer lab, and learning center work together to support non-classroom development and address various learning challenges. LWA recently moved into a new $3 million building on the campus of West County Community Church that provides the finest in classrooms, a full-sized gymnasium with elevated walking track, and a 150-seat chapel to the existing campus set on nearly 30 acres in Wildwood. LWA encourages a sense of family among students, faculty and parents that provides nurturing emotional support during students' critical growth years. The common denominator in all LWA families is a genuine desire to see their children raised in a safe, loving environment, based upon the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Tuition for 2- and 3-year old preschool ranges from $1,385 to $2,080 per year, 4/5 year old/Pre-K tuition ranges from $2,770 to $3,460 per year, and K-8 tuition is $5,760 per year

My son goes to preschool. His teacher is excellent. The curriculum is really preparing him for kindergarten. Best of all, he is making great friends and having a lot of fun learning in a loving Christian environment.

Changes to the Tax Code in late 2017 included the addition of saving for K-12 private school education to 529 plans. We take a look at what this means for families thinking about private school for their children.

From time to time we all wonder how things might have turned out if circumstances and situations had been different. We apply that questioning to private schools.

Hundreds of private schools, and for that matter, public schools, outside the United States will be happy to have you as a teacher for a few years.
