Welcome, and thank you for your interest in Washington Christian Academy. This is a special community marked by grace and care, guiding students and growing with them, yet also holding up God’s truth and Christ’s holiness as our ultimate ends. In Corinthians we read, “The Earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof.” Only in the Christian academy can knowledge and truth meet in such a comprehensive way. If you are a parent investigating schooling options for your children, I believe you are here for a good reason.
Raising and educating our children is one of our highest obligations before the Lord. Very recently, my wife and I did a similar investigation, and the Lord led us all the way from Tennessee to WCA. This is our first choice of where we want to serve the Lord, and the only kind of school of that we would want to call home. My hope is it will become a home for you as well.
James Armistead, Head of School
...a Christian college preparatory school serving children in kindergarten through high school, dedicated to what the ancient Greeks called Paideia--educating both the heart and mind to love what is true, beautiful, and good. This guiding principle--that the goal is not to position students for merely material success but to provide them with the tools they need to truly flourish in all areas of life--is at the heart of everything we do.
WCA’s academic offerings include honors and Advanced Placement courses, as well numerous service projects, internships, and leadership opportunities. Your child will have access to small classes taught by dedicated teachers in a vibrant Christian community.
WCA is a member of Christian Schools International, a membership organization which advances Christian education and supports schools in their task of teaching students to know God and his world and to glorify him through obedient service.
