What a life saving blessing this school is! Honored to have our son in a school where disrespect of adults is not tolerated, integrity and honor are the expectation, and God is the central theme in every subject. We couldn't have imagined the atmospher of love and grace. What an excellent environment to have our son learning daily in. The Farrell's

We have 2 in elementary school at Wake Christian. Our experiences have been nothing but positive since our oldest was in kindergarten. We are very pleased with the Christ-centered teaching. When my youngest came home and said, "I prayed for you today Mommy!", it warmed my heart. It shows that this school is an extension of our home. It's not just a place they go when we are at work. They learn what is important and how to apply it to life. We don't make a lot of money but it is well worth the sacrifices! Beginning this summer, Wake Christian will offer more summer camps to meet the working parents needs. We like that WCA is not static but striving to be dynamic in their Christ-centered approaches.

Wake Christian Academy is a great school, it's more than a school, it is a family. We have been pleased with the Christian teaching and doctrine that is taught in every grade level. The teacher's truely love the students and work to help each student reach success. WCA is a great place.

Both of our children have attended Wake Christian Academy since kindergarten. We have been extremely pleased with the school's academic program, Christian focus, and dedication of the teachers. Our children enjoy school and are excelling in all areas, but especially in math and reading. In fact, they are both reading well above grade level. I attribute this to the strong phonics-based curriculum taught from the start. Class sizes are perfect, the "specials" (art, Spanish, music, PE, and computer) are fantastic, and the doors are always open for parents - you can be as involved in your child's classroom as you like. We have been especially impressed with the school's leadership and the wise choices made on behalf of the students. I would encourage you to visit the campus and experience Wake Christian Academy for yourself.

We have loved our experiences at WCA. This has been the right decision for our family. Our sns have been well cared for and educated the past 3 years (K - 2nd). We hope to continue at this school through 12th grade. It is a loving, safe Christian environment, well worth the price of tuition.

Wake Christian Academy offers an excellent education and caring environment for students of all ages. I have had children at the school now for 8 years and have found the faculty to be well-qualified to teach their subjects as well as very attentive to the students. The athletic program is competitive and offers a variety of sports.
