I am a regular volunteer mom at WCA, so I get the chance to see teachers and staff in action and the extreme dedication of the faculty to the students is always evident! What I sincerely love about WCA is the "family" atmosphere and personalized learning as well as the amazing faith-based education and Chapel every Wednesday where my daughter gets to experience God`s Word in worship music and wonderful speakers. Dr. Breslin, head of school, makes every effort to know all of his students personally, standing at the door to greet every kid who walks through, knowing special details about each one! He brings years of experience in administration and teaching and the most positive outlook I`ve seen in an administrator which is so very refreshing. My daughter is in good hands in every way at WCA. She is flourishing academically, spiritually, athletically, and artistically! Extracurricular activities are abundant! I would highly recommend this school to anyone in search of a special, personalized experience for their children.

I can't say enough great things about this school. I have 3 girls here and each has different needs and learn at different levels. Each is treated individually. One is gifted and needs to be challenged more and they personally wrote a curriculum for her challenging her and allowing her to soar. Dr. Breslin, the head of school, has an amazing background and is taking this school to great places as God leads him!! EVERY TIME I am at the school I am reminded why my kids go there!!

WCA is the ideal school for the parent who is looking for the high quality college prep education in a setting where values and faith are placed in a premium position which makes the child's educational experience much more comfortable and fruitful. Already known throughout the Historic Triangle as a school that keeps its focus on the child's needs and strength as opposed to challenges and issues, WCA has recently named a new Head of School, Dr. Dave Breslin, who is breathing a renewed energy and shows promise of raising the bar even further on the WCA educational and community experience. Some of the leadership choices of the school board in recent years were highly necessary but unpopular in some circles, so before believing angry tirades about the school, contact the Head of School personally and find out what the real deal is at WCA, you won't regret it. He hands out his email to anyone who has interest in the school, so here it is: breslind@williamsburgchristian.org
