Whitinsville Christian School Photo #2 - The WCS campus sits on 27 acres and features a state-of-the-art Center for Arts and Worship, two gymnasiums, a library media center, track, cross country course, tennis courts, two soccer fields, and a softball field.
Whitinsville Christian School Photo #3 - We value hands-on learning, beginning with our youngest students at Stepping Stone Preschool. With a variety of options for 3 and 4-year olds, these young explorers learn to explore God's world with a sense of wonder and excitement.
Whitinsville Christian School Photo #4 - WCS offers competitive MIAA athletics teams at the varsity and JV levels. Our athletics programs are about more than being competitive, student athletes develop leadership skills and learn the value of being a member of a team.
Whitinsville Christian School Photo #5 - The highly successful Robotics Club provides real-world, hands-on learning opportunities for our Robotics team members. The off-campus Robotics lab provides a tremendous venue to learn construction, programing, and testing of robots. Participating in several competitions per year through the FIRST program helps team members hone their talents and develop critical thinking and creative collaboration skills.
Whitinsville Christian School Photo #6 - Our Creator has given us all gifts and students involved in the visual and performing arts have ample opportunities to share their talents with others. From Drama Club performances, choir, bands, and vocal ensembles, to AP Art courses, galleries, and the Art Walk, we are blessed by our students.
- We are a school of inspiration, inquiry, and impact - a vibrant community of engaged learning and living, defined not just by what our students learn, but by who they become.
- WCS is a place where students and teachers strive every day to grow in character, faith, and knowledge, giving glory to God through our fellowship, our excellence, and our responsible leadership and service in the world.

Academics are great, sports are great, teachers a competent and caring but these are not the reason I pay to keep my kids here. The community and culture are worth their weight in gold. Alcohol and drug use are an anomaly among the students. Other parent share our values. Kids are kind and polite. The school trusts the kids to represent well and supports all sorts of frequent day trips and overnight trips to boston, NYC, Washington, D.C., camping, cape cod....for history, sports, class bonding, music tours. The school is not a haven for the rich, don't need the "right" clothes, car or electronics to fit in. Kids are not angels, they make the same mistakes as the public school kids, but it is not expected or accepted. WCS builds strong students with good character.

We have been so happy with our choice to send our kids to this school. The academics are much more challenging than in public school and the curriculum is well rounded. My kids easily made strong friendships and found their teachers to be caring and supportive. We also really enjoy and appreciate the strong arts programs, such as the music programs, and drama productions.

Teachers and administrators who care about the whole child are hard to find, because they are ALL part WCS. Every teacher, administrator, professional, janitor, EVERYONE, including those who are not current, or even former teachers, have been loving and supportive of my children.
