WBCA has provided my children with a quality education, lots of love and support from the faculty, and a strong spiritual foundation. A solid core curriculum, amazing "specials" teachers, and a biblical world view make WBCA outstanding. What we love most about this school, however, is the feeling of a close-knit family. It truly takes a village and everyone at West Bay cares for the children like they are their own.

My wife and I trusted West Bay Christian Academy (WBCA) with educating our two children academically and in sound Christian teachings. Our children have attended WBCA since kindergarten. One child is ready to graduate and the other is not that far behind. That's a familiar story with many that send their children here. The school has played a vital role in assisting us in not only developing our children academically but spiritually and in areas of self discipline, respect, confidence as well as learning the importance of volunteering for community service and developing a good work ethic. The smaller class sizes and individual attention each child receives is fantastic. The dedication, love and care displayed by the teachers, headmaster and staff and are intangibles that you just can't get in a secular environment. As a family we have been enriched immensely by our children attending WBCA. I can also attest to the fact that this school is a tremendous value when compared to the admission fees of other private schools. There is no doubt in my mind that my children are fully prepared for the next step in the education process once they have completed their time at WBCA. I believe in the school so much that I dedicate time on The Board of Trusties helping alongside others to formulate the path for the school to continue to flourish.
