BUILDING TOMORROW’S LEADERS WITH A CHRISTIAN WORLD VIEW
What do we mean by the term “world view?”
Every person has a worldview. A worldview, constructed by influences and experiences in life, provide a lens through which the world is viewed and processed. We all believe something, but “why” do we believe it?
The Christian Worldview is a Biblical worldview, whereby life is filtered. It determines how we interact with people by setting a standard of serving others (Romans 12-15; Galatians 5: 22-26; Luke 10: 25-37), and it is the integral part of all we do, and who we are, at Western Christian Academy (WCA). It provides purpose and an anchor in the process of fulfilling our mission. The Christian Worldview is interwoven into all of
our curriculum at all grade levels.
Therefore, learning at WCA is not just academic, but spiritual as well, developing the whole individual.

WCA 2019-2020 3rd Grade Student—William Hall
William will be starting 3rd grade this fall and he has been enrolled in WCA since Kindergarten.
He enjoys WCA because the lessons are fun and he likes that he gets to learn about God and the Bible in school. His favorite subject is Science as he really enjoys learning about his environment.
The one on one aspect homeschooling provides, has helped him become quite an avid reader. William recently finished reading Eragon, a nearly 500-page book, and is halfway through the next book in the series. Will’s two favorite things are dragons and Godzilla.
His favorite pastimes are fishing, and riding four wheelers and he recently started learning to ride horses at his home in Washington. William adores animals and hopes to become a veterinarian someday.
