WCA GRADUATE COMMENTS:
“My experience with Western Christian Academy was one of great importance to me. Having been through the regular school system for most of my education (elementary and middle school), it was a great transition into being homeschooled and being educated by Western Christian Academy during the last four years. Not only was I able to be taught in a Christian based atmosphere, but I was also able to learn more about myself along the way.
Being homeschooled by Western Christian Academy allowed me to find motivation, ambition, and independence within myself. I am more than grateful to have been a part of this online academy during my 4 years of high school and I wouldn’t have wanted it to be any other way. Thank you Western Christian Academy!”
Annie H., WCA Graduate
A Homeschool Parent’s Reasons to Homeschool
God’s heart wants children who are like Caleb, whose hearts are fully His. He wants Daniel’s who can take on a king and stand strong in the midst of ungodliness. He wants Joseph’s who, although they are falsely accused and put in places of confinement, are godly examples of excellence and service to the King of Kings.
He wants Shadrach’s, Meshach’s, and Abednego’s who will not bow to the idols of the day, even in the face of death. He wants obedient Esther’s who aren’t afraid to trust their God for miraculous deliverance. He longs for Timothy’s, who from a young age, are bathed in the Scripture from infancy and are ready to preach the Word and serve the Lord. God wants the hearts of the fathers to be returned to their children and the hearts of the mothers to be joyful mothers of children, so that a Godly heritage might be raised up for His glory and divine plans and purposes.

Introducing WCA 2020 Graduating Senior…
What 2019-2020 Graduate Ethan Garrett is saying about WCA…
Hello, my name is Ethan Garrett. I live in Louisiana, known as the paradise for any outdoors man. Attending WCA gave me a great education, but also the ability to manage my own schedule. Some of my hobbies are hunting, fishing, and playing my guitar.
In August I will be attending ITI Technical College to get my process tech degree. While attending college, my plan is to pursue my music career and start playing gigs. After graduating college, I will work in operations at a plant along the Mississippi River.
Western Christian Academy has helped me get to where I am today and to be prepared and ready for what the future has to hold. I am very thankful for my parents and WCA’s support to keep me motivated to finish high school. It was a long four years and I’m ready for a new adventure in life.
Hello, we are Jason & Erin Garrett, parents of Ethan Garrett. Ethan had been a student at WCA for the past 6 years and recently graduated on June 19th. WCA has been a blessing for our family and the education Ethan received will be a great stepping stone for his future.
We pulled Ethan from public school because of the declining quality of the system. In that process, we were in search of an institution that would not only have a great educational standard, but one that would also align with our core values. We found that WCA was a perfect match for our family and Ethan’s success.
Western Christian Academy has been a blessing in our lives. The Christian pathway, flexibility and superiority of the education are some of our favorite attributes of WCA. As parents, it has been great to know that the instructors have the same beliefs as our family. In addition, the self-paced daily schedule gave Ethan the freedom to align his study hours to best match our family agenda.
We are very happy with Ethan’s accomplishments at WCA. With our guidance, his self-drive, and the spiritually focused education he received, Ethan has all the tools he needs to become a successful contributor to our society. We are extremely proud of Ethan and his future endeavors.
Ethan Garret is a kind and thoughtful young man. He is quite good at writing his thoughts on paper. His work was regularly neat and easy to read. He wrote how sometimes our faith gets tested, but we need to stay strong in our faith. He stated that the way we handle challenges in life shows what kind of character we have. Ethan has strong character.
