I'm a former teacher and presently on the board. The culture is wonderful, and the academic program is very strong. Just in the past couple of years we have sent two young men to the US Naval Academy, which says it all about the program. Importantly, if a person wants a child to go here, scholarships are available so no-one should be unable to attend due to finances.

I have been blessed to volunteer and work in many schools, but I can honestly say that I feel right at home here at WCA. Teachers have a lot of say in what curriculum is used. The availability of sports is growing as we grow as a school. Watching the connections being made from Kindergarten through 12th grade via our Sodalis Biblica groups makes the campus feel even more like family.
