    I have two children at WCA. I have only had good experiences in the four years they have been there. No school is perfect but we chose this school because it has a smaller overall calmer learning environment. The faculty all have pleasant attitudes a lot of mom's volunteer and the students just seem less stressed and distracted. The school is in my opinion more orderly. I don't want my kids dealing with some of the unnecessary situations that are tolerated more and more in the public system. Like I said I know this school isn't perfect but it has been a good experience for our family so far.

    WCA is a very good christian school. I love to hear my little one singing christian songs in the back set of the car. I also like that it feels like we are all a big family. They teach the Beka program which is a lot more advance than public schools. I would recommend this school highly!!!

    Great school! Caring teachers. What we like the best is that the bible is taught in class. We also appreciate the typical 'high school feel' without the typical high school behavioral problems. The children all seem to be well mannered and thoughtful. The dress code is conservative but still allows for individuality. No uniforms. Our oldest daughter began Westover in K-3. She was reading and writing in K-4. That impressed us. We were even more impressed when she learned to write in cursive in K-5 and could read from level 2 and 3 readers at home. She learns a new bible verse every week and is learning how to apply them to her own life. Christian education is so important and Westover does a great job.
