I can't say enough positive things about my time at WCA. I was fortunate enough to spend my entire 13 years (K5-12) at this school and I received more personal attention and instruction than most children ever have the opportunity to do. I graduated with honors, went on to earn two degrees from a Christian University in Florida and I now work for a Fortune 500 company in the Aerospace and Defense industry. As I no longer live in the area, I don't have the opportunity to send my two girls to the same school that blessed my life in so many ways, but hopefully this review will inspire another parent to give their child the same opportunity I had.

We love the academic, spiritual and social progress seen in our children during the years of enrollment at Wanchese Christian Academy. The focus is on God and others.... not self, yet their individual talents are fostered!

we just completed preK and Kindergarten here and we could not be more pleased. Our children have learned and grown so much in the loving caring environment at WCA under the guidance of the school principal Mrs. Rachel, and their teachers this year. We really look forward to another great year coming up!

I attended and graduated from this school. I have never benn limited in any areas of my life as a result of being a WCA graduate. I feel that its reputation and education have helped me more that if I had attended a public school. I am currently sending my children to this school and as a parent I am even more pleased. I would recommend this school to anyone who values private/Christian education.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
