WCA offers an accredited homeschool program for 7th grade in all 50 states!
Western Christian Academy offers two different programs for 7th to fit your budget and level of parent involvement. Parents can choose between Online With Assistance or Online Teacher On Call. Please review the differences below! All programs have curricula that present a Christian worldview. All programs include placement testing, five subjects, course counselor, record keeping, semester report cards, and in-home achievement testing.
A $150 family registration fee is due when you submit your registration form to save a spot, but you can opt to call in your payment info to give yourself an extra day or two for the registration fee. The family registration fee covers any other students in any of our programs. After the registration fee, the first tuition payment based on your payment option is normally due one week before the student start date. There is normally a substantial savings for a tuition payment structure that has less payments. See each individual program below for tuition options.
ONLINE WITH TEACHER ON CALL: All the benefits of the Online With Assistance program above, but students also receive extra academic assistance and tutoring from teachers at WCA. Parents can direct their student to use a WCA teacher for concept help and questions throughout the year. Students can also access this assistance via the online curriculum message center. Students will have daily interaction with teachers to ensure the best opportunity for success. Along with the built-in message center within the curriculum, one-on-one academic assistance can be provided via telephone, online whiteboard, and other tools. The extra cost per day versus other programs is a great value because of the time and work it saves parents. For example, it is only about $2 per day more than our Online With Assistance program to have academic help available. Compared to the time it saves parents, it is a bargain!

About All Our Programs: Students learn at different rates of speed depending on the subject or concept. Students are guided through the lessons at their own pace, giving them the chance to master concepts at their ability before moving on to more challenging lessons. This allows students more time when needed, but also allows them to move quickly when they have mastered a concept.
Western Christian Academy requires a minimum of a two semester (annual) commitment to protect the school’s reputation for academic progress. Semester, quarterly, and monthly payment options are a provided convenience for the parents’ commitment of two semesters.
Western Christian Academy Advantages:
Western Christian Academy Elementary has full accreditation status with the National Association of Private Schools. (NAPS).
New students take a partial day to use an online tool to customize the student’s personalized academic program. This structure can catch foundational gaps that may be cause areas of struggle.
Annual standardized achievement testing is included in tuition, which can be done at home.
We will take care of the transfer of records from your previous school. WCA offers online access to academic and financial features. The WCA mobile App gives students and families access to important school information such as calendars, events, instant alerts, and reminders.
Curriculum Scope and Sequence:
(e.g. 600 is 6th grade, 700 is 7th grade, 800 is 8th grade)
Basically, all you need is a web browser and access to the internet. Typical wired and wifi broadband will work for internet requirements. When using wifi, it is best to have a minimum of 802.11g so the text to speech feature works well. Usually wireless routers and access points less than ten years old will have 802.11g. Parents using dial up will not be able to use our online program. Some satellite internet providers may not work due to download size restrictions or download speed, so check with us. Air cards with broadband usually work.
Our system will work on both PC and Mac browsers. Many tablets will work, but the non-required text to speech feature usually does not work. Some tablets do not have a good Flash player for multimedia features. Tablets will also need a good PDF reader app installed. Normally, it is better to have a traditional laptop than a tablet, because a USB mouse/keyboard and a larger monitor can plug into the laptop at home to offer a more desktop environment with better ergonomics and a student desk structure. With this laptop structure, the student can just pull the three cables off to take the school work elsewhere.
We also recommend taking steps for protecting your computer and student while online.
