WCA is an amazing school and extended family. We were new to the area this year, and they made us feel right at home. Our daughter has grown mentally, physically, spiritually and socially this past year and learned so much. We can't wait for the 2013/2014 school year!

WCA is the best place for our children. They are so far ahead from an academic perspective compared to friends with children in public school. The "Meet the Masters" art program is wonderful and lots of children at WCA excel in sports. The school is growing at an amazing pace as other parents hear about all the wonderful programs and academic success WCA is having. AMAZING teachers and staff that love my children like their own. Other parents are fun to work with, helpful and always ready to volunteer.

WCA is an "every child challenged to their ability" school instead of "no student left behind." The teachers are without exception of the highest quality personally and professionally. The school encourages and recognizes excellence in conduct, work ethic, and character. If you are looking for a school with excellence academics, but a very friendly environment, this is may be the school for you.
