Situated off a rustic road, encircled by forest, the rural setting of our campus is a beautiful private garden of opportunity in the midst of the greater Washington, D.C. area.
Montgomery County has designated Batchellors Forest Road as a rural road, so the school’s pastoral location will be maintained into the future. Portions of the acreage have been deemed environmental areas that cannot be developed, which provide educational opportunities in themselves.
Washington Christian Academy is more than just a school, it is a community of families who share common faith, values and goals. Those qualities find expression in a dynamic and intimate community life revolving around a mutual commitment to Christ.
The entire WCA community is in one location, simplifying scheduling and commuting for families, enhancing community life and encouraging family involvement.
A serene woodland setting provides an engaging context for worship as well as for education. The campus creates an opportunity for the school to extend its mission, reaching more families and serving a wider geographic area.
With our campus as a home base, WCA and its families are positioned to have a profound impact throughout the region, the country, and the world for the kingdom of Christ.
