I attended WCCA for 9 years (K-8). I loved it so much that my children are now attending. I wouldn't want them to go anywhere else. The academics are great--I was well-prepared for high school. The teachers and staff are absolutely amazing! They truly love the students and care about them. There are plenty of extracurricular activities to suit any child's interest: sports, languages, cooking, music, computers.

I cannot say enough about our school! My children have been attending WCCA for 4 years now. When we first came, our son was shy and had a hard time keeping up with class work. Through the teaching from the great staff at WCCA, he has learned wonderful time management skills and self discipline. Our school has taught my kids about having good Character, and has provided many opportunities for Sports, Leadership, Spelling Bee's and Speech competitions. I would recommend our school to anyone who asks. The Teachers have all been teaching at WCCA for a long stretch of time so there is a lot of stability. The staff is clearly dedicated to making a difference in my children. We are very blessed to have found this school!

We are incredibly happy with our decision to send our son to WCCA. The kindergarten curriculum is outstanding, well-balanced, interesting, instructional, spiritual and fun for the kids. Ours son is thriving in the WCCA environment. He is excited to go to school everyday and comes home talking about all the new things he has learned. We love seeing him so engaged, comfortable and confident about his school. The teachers and staff at WCCA are caring, welcoming and they truly care about their students. It's an environment that fosters personal and spiritual growth. We feel blessed to be a part of WCCA.

This school is amazing! My kids have been going to WCCA for the last 6 years and they really love going here. The teachers are absolutely wonderful and care deeply about every student. They truly show the love of Christ through their interactions with the students. This school is very warm, safe, and welcoming, and you can tell that the students are really taught to treat each other lovingly. We especially love the junior high. The academics, sports, art, drama, music, foreign languages, science programs, gifted programs, and special needs programs are all top-notch. Every subject is taught from a Christian perspective. Best of all, the gospel is clearly taught in every grade level: the message that we can be reconciled to God by trusting in His Son. It is clear here that our sins are forgiven only because of the perfect life and sacrificial death of Jesus in our place: our good works cannot earn us favor with God; Jesus is the only way. The vast majority of parents I speak with are extremely satisfied with our school! Please come visit and talk to real students, teachers, and parents here; they''ll tell you how great it is! We would not want our kids going anywhere other than WCCA!
