Western Christian Academy :: Accredited. Christian Worldview.

Hello! My name is Gracie. I am 16 years old and this is my second year at Western Christian Academy. I chose the school because of the Christian values and variety of courses. I plan on going into acting for film and television as well as learning about production and directing. One of the main reasons I like being homeschooled is because it gives me the flexibility to work at the campground in the summer months and travel in the winter months. I am very thankful for the help and encouragement that I receive from Western Christian Academy! I love my school, and I love my teachers!

Grace, Tobermory, Ontario
