Upper School Curriculum

The Curriculum of Williamsburg Christian Academy encompasses our school culture and instructional philosophy.  It provides students with experiences and skills that prepare them to be informed, inquisitive and empowered members of society.  Students will become perpetual learners in all environments, able to work constructively with diverse groups of people towards a common goal. 

The upper school division consists of grades 9-12. In the upper school, we are about far more than helping students get accepted into the college of their choice. Here, students are not mere receptors of knowledge; they are creators of it. We train our students to be researchers who have the ability to think, reason, and problem-solve in a way that impacts the local community and world at large. The upper school curriculum offers a wide range of academic offerings in the context of a biblical worldview where mastery of the material is stressed. Core classes include English, math, science, history, foreign language, and Bible. In addition, numerous honors and Advanced Placement courses are available. Writing is stressed across the curriculum.

Course offerings for each grade are listed below. When more than one course is listed, students will be placed based on testing, teacher recommendation, parent input and prior performance. In the case of electives, students have the option of picking one from the listed choices.
