Wade Christian Academy is an awesome school with high standards, excellent academics, and a teaching staff that loves their students! I wouldn't send my child to any other school and I thank the Lord for WCA!

Excellent choice for my son. The rules are exactly what society needs, not just Christians. The balance between sports, spirituality, and academics was a key factor in his present success. The organization, the hearts of the teachers, and the love of God shown make this an excellent choice of academic institution.

A very good environment. My sons were well equipped academically. From English to calculus the instruction as well as instructors was excellent. The computer lab introduced my sons to the tech. society. One remaining child at WCA and she is doing very well. I especially like the church leaderships involvement in my kids lives.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
