School Notes

  • At WCS, Christian faith, community, and friendship are put into practice to help guide students into Christian maturity. WCS has a long and well-known history of influencing generations of students to go on to serve Christ effectively in diverse vocations. The WCS difference is that every school activity, whether academic, athletic, art, or social, is guided by caring Christian mentors with a biblical view of life and learning.
