Parents often remark to us that WCA just feels....different. Different from other schools, both public and private. Often they can't put their finger on it, other times they identify the differences in intricate detail. For some, the personalization truly impacts their student's learning. In other cases, it is the way that the teachers work so hard to understand each and every child and teach in a spirit of hope, love, and grace in everything they do. But what we hear many times from many parents is that you can sense the presence of God in our halls and classrooms.
This is what we call 'the WCA Experience'. It's a sense of fellowship and belonging, of teachers and leaders who care deeply for each child and do their job in a way that every day seeks to draw out their fullest potential, and of a system that seeks excellence, not for the sake of being excellent, but because God has called us to be so.
Enjoy this video, written, produced and shot by our own student media team and leadership class, explaining our culture of inclusiveness at WCA. The video was winner of a national contest that won the students scholarships, and the school $75,000 in new school lockers for our upper level.

Read this article which calls directly on the latest studies that confirm that small class sizes do matter.
