Overview

Washington Christian Academy says

Washington Christian Academy is more than just a school -- it is a diverse community of families who share common faith, values and goals. Established in 1960, WCA partners with parents, teachers, and churches to provide a biblically-based, college preparatory educational experience that is reverent, adventurous, and academically serious. At WCA, children in grades K-12 discover that learning extends outside the classroom, reaching onto the stage in musical and theatrical performances, on the athletic fields and courts, in clubs, community service projects, field trips, family events, and beyond. The 60-acre campus is home to an academic building, gymnasium, athletic fields, and extensive wetlands. To learn more about the WCA experience, visitwww.washingtonchristian.org, email admission@washingtonchristian.orgor call 240-390-0429. Reverent: We educate our children to examine all things in the light of God's glory. A Christian school plays a vital role in forming mature, thoughtful disciples. At Washington Christian, the progression begins with Bible verses in early grades, continues with Scripture study and church history, and includes theology in the high school years.Adventurous:We believe that God is the source of all creation and all truth; therefore we teach and learn with enthusiasm and vigor, never with narrowness or fear. We study all things through a biblical lens. For this reason, we do not limit ourselves to a "Christian" curriculum. We study the same source materials and aim at the same standard as the best schools, religious or secular; we always seek to develop both intellectual integrity and Christian discernment in our students.Academically Serious: Our curriculum represents the full range of arts and sciences, physical education and sports, drama and music. Our goal is to lead students to the highest academic levels of which they are capable. But the higher goal remains the formation of persons toward their fullest capabilities as men and women made in the image of God. We believe that these goals are totally compatible and complementary. Foreign languages include Latin in grades 6-8, and Spanish in grades 9 -12.At the high school level, we offer Advanced Placement courses in Literature, Chemistry, Calculus, Biology, Government, and European History. We present art exhibitions, concerts, and plays each year.
