Your Child Belongs Here If...

You want an experience for your child...

...that is Reverent

We educate our children to examine all things in the light of God's glory. A Christian school plays a vital role in forming mature, thoughtful disciples. At Washington Christian Academy, the progression begins with Bible verses in early grades, continues with Scripture study and church history, and includes theology and ethics in the Upper School years.

We believe that God is the source of all creation and all truth; therefore we teach and learn with enthusiasm and vigor, never with narrowness or fear. We study all things through a biblical lens. For this reason, we do not limit ourselves to a "Christian" curriculum. We study the same source materials and aim at the same standard as the best schools, religious or secular; we always seek to develop both intellectual integrity and Christian discernment in our students.

… that is Academically Serious

Our curriculum represents the full range of arts and sciences, physical education and sports, drama and music. Our goal is to lead students to the highest academic levels of which they are capable. But the higher goal remains the formation of persons toward their fullest capabilities as men and women made in the image of God. We believe that these goals are compatible and complementary.

You want your child in an environment that will transform their way of life

G.K. Chesterton once wrote, “Education is not a subject, and it does not deal in subjects. It is instead the transfer of a way of life.” Every day at Washington Christian Academy, we are about the business of transferring a way of life to our students. It is a way of life that develops intellectual gifts, artistic genius, athletic talents, moral fiber, and spiritual vitality. It is a way of life that remembers our heritage of faith and the sacrifices of those who have gone before us. It is a way of life that lives each day as an expression of gratitude for the grace that is ours in Christ Jesus. It is a way of life that loves and serves Christ by loving and serving our neighbors. It is a way of life that gives hope. It is a way of life that turns dreams into realities.

The college environment can be a very challenging spiritual environment.  Both in and out of classrooms, we work to prepare our students to meet those challenges, and excel.  WCA students are trained to think about our Christian faith and how we can convincingly and thoughtfully engage with non-Christians.
