Westside Christian Academy

  • Westside Christian Academy opened its doors in the fall of 1996 with the vision of providing solid Christian education for children on the west side of Cleveland.
  • We provide an excellent academic program, presented from a biblical wordview, which incorporates a unique mentoring relationship between the student and classroom teacher. Our program includes Bible, math, grammar, literature, science, history, Latin, physical education, and the dramatic arts including choir, music theory, art, and drama.
  • Our challenging curriculum integrates the philosophy of the classical education within a traditional classroom setting.
  • Our small class size ensures that each student receives individualized attention on a daily basis. WCA's philosophy embodies the concept that education is more than just academics; it also involves character development, which enables children to fulfill God's will in their lives.
  • While we believe that the Bible affirms that parents are responsible for the education and training of their children, Westside Christian Academy exists to assist parents in this important task.
