A FULLY ACCREDITED DISTANCE LEARNING PRIVATE SCHOOL OFFERING HOMESCHOOLING YOU CAN TRUST.
Western Christian Academy is dedicated to assisting families, by providing quality academic programs from a Christian worldview, through individualized instruction, and affordability.
Every person has a worldview. A worldview, constructed by influences and experiences in life, provide a lens through which the world is viewed and processed. We all believe something, but “why” do we believe it?
The Christian Worldview is a Biblical worldview, whereby life is filtered. It determines how we interact with people by setting a standard of serving others (Romans 12-15; Galatians 5: 22-26; Luke 10: 25-37), and it is the integral part of all we do, and who we are, at Western Christian Academy (WCA). It provides purpose and an anchor in the process of fulfilling our mission. The Christian Worldview is interwoven into all of our curriculum at all grade levels. Therefore, learning at WCA is not just academic, but spiritual as well, developing the whole individual.
This foundational principle of Western Christian Academy (WCA) sets us apart from the ideological theories of education and gets to the heart of education: developing life-long learners, one student at a time. We do not look at an entire class to determine what is best for that class. We look at the individuals of each class and think critically about how we can support that student right where they are, not where they should be. WCA has 4 courses of study for high school students: Basic, General, College Prep, and Honors. Therefore, any student can graduate from Western Christian Academy.
Students are given a Placement Test in Math and English upon entering. The results inform us of the capability of the student by identifying “learning gaps” in their academics. This is critical for Mathematics as it builds upon itself. Students are given curriculum at their functional level, which may or may not be at their academic level. This does not mean students are held back, but allows students to build confidence through individualized instruction as they strive to master their learning gaps, which helps to accelerate their learning. High School students are still earning credit towards graduation, even though they may have a course that is below a high school level.
The Individualized Instruction Pillar of WCA has been a sustaining pillar for over 30 years. It has proven itself repeatedly through the lives of our students and families.
The vision behind this pillar of Western Christian Academy (WCA) was to provide an affordable private school education for those families that desired to attend a private school, but could not afford it. For over 30 years, this core value has been nonnegotiable with WCA administration.
Budgets can be tight for many families. This is just one reason why WCA believes in consistency when it comes to tuition. Our goal is to maintain the tuition costs consistently for a minimum of 2 years, thereby helping families to plan ahead for their students education.
