    My children have attended Western Christian Academy for the last four years. My youngest started with kindergarten & my oldest started in junior high. I have a child with autism. Homeschool was & still is the best option for my children. Not only have my children finished each year with A's and B's they're able to take their time learning the material. Having bible study daily is plus! As a parent I rely on the payment options Western Christian Academy offers. I highly recommend this accredited christian school!

    I do not recommend this school as they are too lenient which will result in your child not learning the material presented to them.

    I recently Homeschooled my twin teenager daughters & my youngest son for School Year 2012/13. I really have to say that I really love WCA the Online teachers & the staff at the office. They were always readily made available for my children especially my twins which we had to get the Online Teachers because they are in H.School. For us it is difficult because our hrs are off by 4 hrs. We live in Oahu HI so by the time my kids start their homeschoolg they have exactly 2 or 3 hrs to communicate with the teachers and I totally disagree with the other parent comment. The teachers are always ready made available. I've seen one of the teachers working on holidays when they don't have too and I've seen a bunch of the other teachers working off duty (in their family time) to accommodate my teens & yes we don't have the control but the blessing is "if you ask they can communicate with you!" Too me that was a blessing to have because I was my youngest son teacher & knowing my kids had others to rely on was a blessing. The other good thing about this was it's an accredited school so this next school yr I have the options to placing them back into the public school system. Love WCA

    You must do your homework when it comes to online schools. There are so many out there now. I've been at WCA for the 2012/2013 school year. What I liked was that they did all of the grading for the program that I chose for my son. What I didn't like is the lack of control you have as a parent from an educational standpoint. In order to get them to grade the curriculum for you you have to get the teacher on call and that teacher is only available for a few hours a day and they aren't there to immediately unblock alternative quizzes and tests when your child needs to retake one. I found that the teacher rarely checked in or monitored where my son needed help especially in math. I believe that they did the very minimum for what they charge. If I didn't go with the teacher on call then the grading was entirely left up to me but after middle school they don't allow it. In other words teacher on call is mandatory. I gave this school a 1 star because there are so many other schools out there that have tweaked their programs to cater to online children/parents. They also use Catholic study for bible.
