Word Of God Academy Photo #1 - Equipping future generations for life and eternity
EQUIPPING FUTURE GENERATIONS FOR BOTH LIFE AND ETERNITY" The purpose of Word of God Academy is to focus on the Ten Biblical Principles of Kingdom Education and to assist Christian parents in educating, equipping, and encouraging their children to embrace these principles; to strive for academic excellence and model Christ-like leadership in the home, church, and the community for the next generation. We are parents, educators and administrators who have a conviction that we shouldn't have to choose between an excellent education or a Christian environment.
We believe our children need and deserve both.  Kingdom Education
We believe in parents and the importance of their involvement in their child's class and education and input in the school.
We want to partner with parents to raise students that are prepared to excel, lead, and impact the world for Christ.

Our son struggled so much in the public school system. He was lost in a sea of students with wonderful, but completely overwhelmed teachers, an IEP that did nothing for him, and a school system that just wanted to push him through to the next grade level when he was not even remotely ready. Moving him to WOGA was the BEST decision we ever made. His reading comprehension levels, and confidence, soared after only a year at WOGA Upper School. He settled in so quickly. The students, faculty, and administration are phenomenal, responsive, and completely dedicated to our kids, their futures, and their spiritual foundations. We are three years in and looking forward to the next. I cannot possibly recommend WOGA enough. We are beyond happy with how much our son has benefited from the WOGA family.
