We are going on our fifth year at WCA and are so thankful for the experience my daughter has had at this wonderful school with a dedicated staff that truly looks at each individual student and their unique needs creating the perfect personalized education from every angle! My daughter has had such special opportunities at WCA to grow academically, spiritually, and in character! Our experience at WCA has sincerely been one of a kind and I am confident she is being both nurtured and challenged as she develops her independence and gets prepared for college. If you are searching for a Christ-centered family atmosphere with excellent teachers, administrators, and staff who take great care in the development of your children while inspiring them to be there best, this is the place for you! Step through the doors and see.

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
