Westside Christian Academy has been a vision of Westside Baptist Church for many years. In 2006, we began the Preschool program which quickly became one of the most respected in the community. In the fall of 2012 we added the Kindergarten program. Since then we have expanded to the 6th grade and in February 2019 we were awarded full accrediation with the American Association of Christian Schools. We are excited to see where God takes us next!.

School Reviews

Great pre-school program. I have friends who work for the Waynesville school district and they sent their kids to Westside Academy's preschool program because how advanced their students are once they move into kindergarten with the local schools. They have a morning and after school program as well which helps me out as a working parent. If you pay the full school tuition before the classes start there is a discount. I love the small class sizes which is great for my son.
