Parents, are you and your students struggling?

At WCA, something incredible happens when students experience the caring support of the teachers and staff. They begin to grow and blossom into caring, responsible individuals. They begin to see a future filled with promise, and they believe—in themselves, in others, and in the future.

At WCA, we do this by providing a Christian education that meets the needs of the whole student in the safe and comfortable environment of your home, supported by a caring staff who encourages excellence.

WCA is excited about helping your children rediscover the joy of learning!

“Thank you for all of your time and help! I have nothing but amazing things to say about your program and everyone who works with Western Christian Academy. I recommend it to anyone looking for online education. You provide a top notch education and tremendous support at an affordable price. Thank you again. God bless! ” WCA Parent – Shanna

“Ashlyn has been a WCA student since her freshman year and graduated in 2022. She has accepted a scholarship to continue her education and rodeo at NMJC in Hobbs, New Mexico where she will pursue a degree in business with an emphasis in real estate all while continuing to compete in the rodeo world.

WCA has been the best high school experience she could have hoped for. The teachers are great. The office staff members and principal are awesome! We couldn’t have spent the last 4 years any better way.

Thank you, WCA!!!!”

WCA PRAYS!

We believe…

Prayer changes everything!

The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. James 5:16b

“To make intercession for men is the most powerful and practical way in which we can express our love for them.” John Calvin

The heart of education is the transformation of the heart. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.” Proverbs 1:7

Introducing WCA
2022-2023
Freshman
Gracie Cotton
This family chose WCA for their daughter

Read through the newsletter

to find out WHY.

Gracie’s parents’ thoughts…
My name is Cristy Cotton. My husband Kevin and I are the proud parents of our daughter Gracie Cotton. She is the greatest joy of our life besides God and Jesus. She is our only child. God blessed us with her. She is our miracle. Gracie loves to crochet, work on her own small businesses that she has, helping animals, as well as helping others in need. She surely does let her light shine. We are so blessed to have Gracie enrolled in Western Christian Academy. We were looking for a Christian-based program when I picked up a list of different Tennessee accredited home schools. The first one that Gracie picked was this school. Throughout the process, she was stuck on Western Christian Academy.

Being a Mom, I told her that we needed to research the other ones first before making a final decision. Well, here we are. This was the one that we chose. Things happen for a reason. We love WCA. Gracie gets to work on her work with no interruptions and at her own pace. We love it that she can e-mail and call her teachers to get any help that she may need. She is already working on her ninth-grade year. She is so excited about starting high school.

Thank you for all of the love and support that you have shown Gracie and our family. You are amazing!

About WCA …
Western Christian Academy has been serving families for over 38 years. Distance Learning, Online education, Remote Learning, Homeschooling, whatever you call it, and just plain learning is NOT NEW to our school. We have been equipping students for many years to “think outside of the box” and to become the men and women God wants them to be, prepared to lead their families, their communities and their world.

With WCA, students are guided through the lessons at their own pace, giving them the chance to master concepts at their ability, instead of being rushed through, which makes further learning, impossible.

This allows students more time when they need it but it also ensures that when a student quickly learns a topic, they are allowed to move on to the next, so no time is wasted.

WCA is a home for ideas, discovery, spiritual growth, and engagement—intellectual pursuits that our students and their families treasure. Our academic offerings are buoyed by our warm and welcoming, teachers and staff.

At WCA, students explore and extend their abilities, test their ideas, question assumptions, grapple with moral issues, develop critical thinking skills while at the same time, acquiring the vital tools to be positive and productive citizens, who are equipped to change their world. Led by exceptional and caring Christian teachers, our students are encouraged to grow and become all that God wants them to be.

So if you are looking for a fresh new start for your student/s or are already on board, it is never too late to provide hope for your students by ensuring they receive the support and individualized curriculum needed to ensure their success!

                                                Every day is a new beginning! It’s never too late!

Congratulations!!

One of Ethan's Teachers says this:

Ethan Yoos excelled and was an outstanding student in Governments/Economics.

His success got him to the top, in our Mastery Program, at Western Christian Academy.

I believe he will be able to achieve the highest level in any academics he puts his mind and time into. I am looking forward to great things for Ethan.

Best wishes for an exciting future coming his way. God Bless.

Mr. Christiansen

Ethan's Parents said...

It is such a blessing to have found a solid partnership with an accredited, Bible-based school, all the while continuing to homeschool. As all the staff know, we are a military family and have lived in different parts of the world and our nation, moving every three years. WCA has been an integral part of our family. Our first experience with WCA was impactful since it was also our family’s first time living overseas in Japan and our first military deployment as a family. Even with the time difference and the hectic military schedule for our family, our kids’ teachers were so open to communicate at odd hours and accommodated us without skipping a beat! We knew then that we will continue on with WCA!

Fast forward to many years of schooling and multiple military moves, our firstborn, Ethan earned his Eagle Scout and graduated from WCA this year (2021). Our daughter, Evelyn began her Sophomore year and serves in our church’s sound engineering. Both are on the worship team! We have seen Ethan and Evelyn grow each in their own way academically, but also in their faith. All our wonderful teachers have kept us on track, counseled each of our kids towards their own goals, encouraged us, kept our sanity intact, and prayed for us diligently, more than we know.

We are so grateful to God for everyone at WCA! Thank you for your love, patience, and academic guidance in the past and in the coming years!

Why Choose WCA?​

 

 

 

First of all, we emphasize Academic Excellence,

and we focus on Spiritual Growth.

Our students grow through relationships with their teachers who are focused on assisting your child/ren academically. Our teachers are available also to meet them where they are spiritually, challenging them to draw closer to the Lord and to become all that God wants them to be.

Our staff meets each morning to pray for our students. We care! We help our students identify their purpose by learning who they are in Christ, utilizing their God-given talents, and living out their personal callings so that they will become successful now and after they graduate. When they leave WCA, they are equipped to live fulfilled lives, impacting generations to come for Christ. WCA has multiple 2nd generation students and soon 3rd generation students.

“We are changing lives, one generation at a time.”

Now as never before, we need to raise young people up to change our world for the glory of God. As we partner together with parents and students, we can change our world…yes, even through “just one life” wholly dedicated to Him.
