The Easter Message…
God created us in His own image to love and serve Him forever. Yet even before he created the first man and woman, God knew that sin would come into the word and separate us from Him. So… before the first star winked in the Heavens above us, God planned to send his Son to save His people. And then at the perfect time, His Son Jesus did come…the Son of God who never sinned, died to take our punishment for our sins. Three days later, He conquered death and rose from the grave.
One day we will be raised up to a new and eternal life in a new and perfected body. Our hearts will be made like His – full of love, joy, and peace…and we will spend forever and eternity with Him. This has always been God’s plan. We just need to simply follow Him.
The Gospel of John 3:16-17 says:
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.”
From Our Hearts To Yours…Happy Easter!

High School Graduate
WCA Alumni Spotlight
This exists so that past, present and future generations can know and acknowledge the huge amount of work and dedication among our alumni base and for all to understand why Western Christian Academy has been chosen by students and families for generations.
Western Christian Academy has taught 2nd and 3rd generations of students the value of hard work, dedication, faith and commitment to Christ, a will to never give up, and pride in themselves. They have learned the skills to win yet they have also learned how to handle crises…and at times, even defeat. For in this, you learn to overcome future problems and secure solutions to problems facing our society. The diversity of our student population also enables us to learn from each other, thus enabling us to impact many for Christ around the world.
WCA Alumni and students are changing OUR world for Christ
One student … at a time!
R: Luke’s Graduation Photo.
I am a 1998 WCA High School Graduate. I am also one of 5 students in my family who graduated from WCA. I currently serve as a contractor on the Central Coast with Central Coast Construction/Jubilee Construction.
After completing high school with WCA, I attended Elim Bible School and lived in Singapore for one year as a missionary. Later, I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Beacon University, majoring in Biblical Studies.
I married in 2019 and have a lovely wife and a 2 year old son with another baby due soon.
Due to the solid foundation in education that I received at WCA, I found college was much easier for me than for many of my peers who had not yet developed the above-mentioned skills.
We Have 4 More Reasons To Celebrate!

Parents, Is Your Child Actively Engaging With His/Her
Teachers When Needing Assistance?
Also, your student can request assistance via phone calls, email, messaging, SKYPE (with or without video) or GOOGLE MEET.
“Does your child know the right question to ask? Does your student know the the right person to request help from… to get the right answers? “
Our teachers are available to assist our students with instruction, mentoring, and the development of life skills through the academic process.
If your student is struggling, please encourage them to ask for help!
Our teachers and teacher’s assistants are here for YOUR STUDENT/S.
