Juan (Nacho)!

We are the Osorio family. Erick and Vilma
(Honduras & Argentina). We have been sent as
missionaries to Bangkok, Thailand by our local
church in Argentina since 2007. Our children
Nacho (age 12) 6th grade and Arella (age 5)
kindergarten, are both currently enrolled at WCA.

After the virus health crisis in 2020, we were
struggling to find a suitable school program for
our son, especially with his autism spectrum
condition. We are blessed God guided us to this
school. Teachers are very understanding and
helpful. They strive to help us in spite of the time
difference and other hurdles.

Our kids love the school and the curriculum, it is
flexible enough for them to use their God given
talents. What we love the most is that the kids
can access their classes from anywhere, espe
cially now that we are on furlough and visiting
churches back home.

What Students Are Saying About WCA:

I cannot say enough amazing things about you and this school. It’s so wonderful to know that Gage is getting an amazing education, loves his work, and loves learning more and more as times goes on. And for me as a single mom, raising him and along with his health issues, this school truly has been a gift from God and I am beyond thankful and know that we are very blessed.

G. Baker, WCA Parent

WCA Offers The Best Level Of Support!

Did you know that WCA course counselors will:

Evaluate and place your student at a level that meets his or her academic deficiencies and strengths.

Monitor each student’s progress and provide a support system that is unmatched.

Communicate with parent and student when they notice a student is struggling in a particular area.

They may assign review work or more detailed instruction in that area to serve as reinforcement.

Maintain academic records, report cards, and accredited transcripts.

Support you through communication by phone or online assistance.

Foster school spirit through affiliation with a school with real teachers who are interested in their achievements.

Christian education is a mandate from God for the family (Matthew 28:18-20). Because of Scripture
verses like Proverbs 19:27,22:6, Deuteronomy 6:5-9, and Colossians 2:8, we are to provide an atmos-
phere more conducive to the precepts of the Bible.

AT WCA, we strive to instill in our students a love for learning and a love for God.

Education alone is not enough!

Introducing WCA
Student Of The Month…
Juan (Nacho) Osorio

Please keep reading to learn more about this student and his family!

My name is Nacho. My favorite hobbies are gaming, drawing, going out with friends and family. My fa
vorite subject is History and Science. Both of these subjects are fascinating, interesting and cool. In the
future I would like to pursue electronic engineering. My favorite teacher is Miss Charity because she is
nice and friendly.

My parents are missionaries in Bangkok, Thailand. Sometimes I go with my dad to teach the students
English. During the virus health crisis, I helped distribute food and supplies to the people in the neigh-
borhood. I love Asian food, and especially Ramen noodle soup.

I have my own you-tube channel where I post my science experiments and projects and other con-
tents. I love being a comedian and hanging out with friends at church on Saturdays and Sundays.
