Westlake Christian Academy

  • You face many choices today for the education of your child.
  • Public school, home school, private school... you want what is best for your child, and you have the responsibility to "train up a child in the way he should go." In considering a Christian education, Westlake Christian Academy stands ready to come alongside you and assist in the task of making disciples, prepared and ready for service in our Lord's kingdom.
  • We offer a faculty that shares your priority for building up students in their Christian faith in a world that has become increasingly hostile to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • The foremost goal of WCA is to become the first choice of parents and students seeking a Christ-centered elementary and secondary education where the truth of the Bible is integrated into every aspect of school life.
  • We aim to teach students to think, speak, write, and act in a Christian manner in preparation for life's challenges and to model Christ in their school, church, workplace, and community.
