“Western Christian Academy is an excellent school that I attended since sixth grade. They supported me through my ups and downs over the last few years. Due to family health difficulties and my experience of homelessness in my senior year of high school, it was a challenging time for me. Computer Science was my favorite class and that is what my father does. One of my goals is to become a web developer or video game developer. Mr. Christiansen, one of the sweetest and kindest teachers I have met, is my favorite instructor. His
tales and escapades from the military were quite interesting to hear.”

Online With Teacher On-Call Program (8th-12th Grade)
Western Christian Academy uses Ignitia, an award-wining learning system that presents a Christian worldview for 8th-12th grades. Students are assigned Western Christian Academy teachers with the Online With Teacher On-Call Program. Created to give a truly multi-dimensional interactive learning experience, Ignitia courses are infused with over 50,000 media enhancements, 3-D animation and cutting-edge multimedia including video clips, digital tutors, slide shows, animation, dynamic learning games, historical timelines, and hands-on exercises that bring learning to life. Packed with exciting content and dynamic elements, this learning system engages students and inspires academic achievement. The curriculum is written on the principle of “mastery learning.” This means that students truly master the content and skills of one unit before progressing to the next. The “mastery learning” approach ensures success by allowing each student to spend as much time as necessary in one subject before moving on to the next unit of work.
Students can complete schoolwork questions, activities and quizzes from any learning environment location with broadband internet connection. A large portion of student work is automatically computer scored, parents time, and it guides a student’s thinking while the concept is fresh in their mind. To enhance student motivation, parents and students can view their grades online at any time. Parents and students have access to a built-in messaging system included within the Ignitia curriculum that allows them to communicate easily with their teachers throughout the day for on-on-one academic assistance by telephone, Skype, online whiteboard and other digital tools. There are 10-units of work per subject, per year with approximately 60 lessons per subject (5-units each semester) with new concepts and skills integrated throughout all subjects for reinforcement. The parent plays a large role in providing the learning environment and daily structure for the student. Parents may direct their student to use a Western Christian Academy teacher for academic assistance throughout the school year, including tutoring. A Western Christian Academy Parent Advocate is readily available as needed to assist with implementing the program.
