Garrett Fish

I didn’t attend Western Christian Academy for long, but my experience was truly special. I had many worries coming into this program, but the supportive teachers and staff helped me every step of the way. WCA allowed me to sleep in, take longer lunches, and sometimes end my weeks early while still receiving a high-quality education. My favorite part of online school was the responsibility shift onto the student, which prepared me for college in ways I didn’t even recognize! I plan to attend a Christian college, Grace Christian University, for a history major this coming fall. Thank you, WCA, for everything! (His mother, Roxanna, and his step-dad, Don are in the picture.)
