Westminster Opelousas is an amazing school! Our family is so blessed to be a part of what they are doing not only academically but biblically as well.

As a parent of alumni I can confidently say that Westminster prepared both of my students for college and the "real" world. Unlike many of their friends who began to struggle in college for the first time in their lives, my children excelled because they were already adjusted to a challenging academic program. Not only did Westminster prepare my children academically, but also prepared their hearts spiritually. I can only hope and pray that my grandchildren will be able to attend Westminster one day!

I attended Westminster my entire life from K3 to my senior year. It s true when they say that you don t truly appreciate something until it s gone. I realized this my first year in college when I was completely on my own. Professors didn t genuinely care about me or have my best interests in mind like my teachers and coaches at WCA did. That was a hard lesson to learn, but it made me appreciate WCA and their caring and nurturing environment that much more. I cannot wait to send my future children to WCA one day!

Westminster is such a wonderful school! We were able to send both of our daughters there. Because of all of the preparations Westminster, our daughters were able to go through college with no problems. One of our daughters has finished Nursing school(RN) at age 20 and our other daugher is about to get her Pharmacy degree.

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.
