I cannot express the gratitude I have for the teachers and the staff at this school. My child is exceling and being nurtured by his teacher. There is a true support system in place transitioning into a new curriculum and the other students encourage and build each other up.

Since 2010 our daughter has attended WOLCA. We enrolled her in WOLCA, at the very last moment, due to a last minute relocation. WOLCA had only one place left open in the Pre School and we meet Mrs Johnson (Pre School Principal at that time) and were immediately impressed with Mrs Johnson presentation of the how the Preschool educates the kids. Mrs Johnson showed us a very thick binder which was the Pre School Curriculum and she diligently explained the Curriculum to us. We had no hesitation, at all, in enrolling our daughter in the school. That decision was very fortunate because our daughter has excelled, each and every year, and has been an Honor Roll student every year since. We have had no hesitation at all in re-enrolling our daughter as we very quickly realised that our daughter gets a solid Christian AND Academic foundation. We have been continually impressed with the teachers and staff at the school, as they all love the Lord, nurture and always try there best for the kids. The teachers and staff have been unwavering in their dedication to the school, as they have done many jobs outside school time at nights and the weekends and all this work is totally unpaid and for the benefit of the kids. We have found the school to be a very safe and secure environment for our child, if it were not, we would not have her there. Mrs Johnson is now the Principal for WOLCA and has done an incredible job of steering the school in the right direction of continuous improvement both in spiritual and academic excellence. It does our hearts good to see how our daughter loves the Lord and excels in the school. Presently Fairfax County Schools has decided to more open to different views, genders etc. it has worried us that our young daughter would be exposed, at far too early an age, to views which we do not agree with. We believe that this would cause her undue stress and would be a total distraction for her. We are so relieved and happy that our daughter is safe and secure in WOLCA, with loving and nurturing teachers and staff
