I have had two children graduate from this school and I am so grateful for the opportunity to send them there. I truly believe the truth they learned here will shape their entire lives in a positive way. They are prepared for college and for life.
To be honest...I wouldn't even give this school one star. Terrible school overall. The education as well as the teachers make classes very challenging. I've been forced to go to this school for a while now and cannot wait till graduation. Many of my friends are in danger of not even graduating. So, overall, unless you want your son/daughter to be challenged to the point where they WILL fail and have an effect on the colleges their accepted too, don't sent them here. One more note, why would you pay $16000 dollars for it like to be honest I wouldn't send my future kids if it was free.
This is my second year at WCA and I ve had an amazing experience there. From the very beginning, I felt welcomed in. The teachers are awesome, and they care about each student individually. They all know their subjects well, form relationships with each student, and are a LOT of fun. The classes are small, so that everyone gets attention from the teachers and gets to participate. One of my favorite parts about the school includes our house system, where we have crazy competitions for the house cup. Also, I have many wonderful friends from all backgrounds. I would definitely recommend WCA to any high schooler!
No regrets about sending my child here for K through 12. Great campus. Caring staff. Challenging coursework. Christian values.
Washington Christian Academy an awesome educational home for children of all family dynamics. Their teachers are highly qualified, organized, and definitely on hands, serious about the nature of educating the students. The facility is beautiful and updated in technology. Most importantly children are being taught the most valuable foundation and fundamentals of life - that's the biblical knowledge of God!!! The curriculum is balanced thereafter students will be able to be leaders in the world but know the difference of bible living versus worldly mindsets. I applaud values and standards WCA instrument into the lives and educational atmosphere for their students. Our personal experience is that without WCA our children would not been able to handle the challenges and transitions that occurred in our family if they wasn't attending Washington Christian Academy which offer a wonderful loving outlet and environment while educating them daily. The school constantly embraces growth without compromising its integrity of morals and standards. The one and only limitation is transportation however the school is very resourceful and helping in trying to assist with resolutions.
Washington Christian Academy is a private school located in Olney, Md. It has grades K-12. It has a beautiful, recently new campus, which we have spent years saving money for. It is a college prep school with many wonderful teachers with excellent knowledge in the field they teach. The teachers are not only great educators but also wonderful people. They are caring and friendly people. The students themselves are like any other student, but are still willinging to learn and work with diligence, and are kind and friends even to the shyest of people. WCA offers many clubs such as cooking club, drama club, swing dance club, and many more wonderful clubs. It also has many sports available such as volleyball, soccer, basketball, cheerleading, baseball, softball, tennis, and golf. WCA is a loving environment, where you make life-long friends and memories. Personally, I have enjoyed my time at WCA, and I am greatful for the wonderful education and friends that have been bestowed upon me here.
My two children went to Washington Christian Academy from Kindergarten through 12th Grade. They each received an excellent education and enjoyed their school-age years there. They both made life-long friends, as did our entire family. They recognized that the outstanding teachers made a positive difference in their educational experiences. Both commented that they believed that their teachers truly wanted them to succeed, and that they were not just taught facts, they were taught how to problem solve and learn. It's an academically challenging school. It's a warm school, with a welcoming community. If you're looking for a Christian school with heart, that will give your child educational foundation, look no further.
WCA is a school, a community, a family. It is a place we have felt comfortable having our children educated and where they have made life-long friendships. While it is academically rigorous, there are many social, athletic and creative opportunities for students to develop their God-given gifts.
The WCA environment is a great place for students to learn. From the careful investment of the teachers, to the stewardship of the administration, to the involvement of the parents, WCA is an all-around great school. My students are challenged academically and spiritually each day. We've been a part of the school for 8 years and look forward to many more.
Washington Christian Academy (WCA) is not simply another school, it is an environment where the kids learn how to respect others, realize that learning can be fun, and develop academic skills that will enable them to succeed long after they leave WCA.
I used to hate Math, but now Math is my favorite class because my teacher (who is very smart and lots of fun!) has helped me to work hard and also enjoy it at the same time.
This is the 3rd year that my 2 sons have attended WCA, and we cannot say enough positive things about the school. Our family looks forward to the next 5 years with this committed community of faculty and parents. The teen years are full of struggles, and with one child in Middle School and another grappling with the increased demands of High School, we appreciate the attention given to helping the children grow in the way they tackle their studies. The upcoming College Fair is an excellent opportunity for our boys to fix their sights on opportunities that will soon be on the doorstep. 12th Grade is not that far away!
I am a new student to this school and my first week was the best. There were always students to help me find my class and I made friends easily . that school is basically in perfect shape as in the lockers have no chipped paint and if the books are in bad shape that is because they are very old some almost since 1999. the teachers are understanding especially if you have been enrolled late and they give you more time to finish that work . there has never been bullying in this school that I have witnessed . there are many different ways to get to school and back home such as carpool bus rides walking or by bicycle . I take carpool and the people I ride with are very nice to me . Overall I am in love with this school and I recommend it to anyone .
WCA is absolutely fantastic. I've been going here since kindergarden and I've loved every minute of my time here. As a senior, I feel more than prepared for college
Washington Christian Academy is a great Christian school. I would definately recommend it to friends and family. Their are great kids and teachers and it is a wonderful enviroment for your children.
Washington Chistian Academy is a wonderful school, where teachers do more than just teaching a subject. Teachers are caring and understanding and instill the love of learning in students. The environment in our school is unique, Students have the opportunity to interact with each other in the many extracurricular activties provided by the school.
I remember going to this school for my first year in 5th Grade. I didn't know anybody, and nobody knew me, but right off in one week many people became my friends, and we always hung out together, and even now we do. There are a lot of fun things to do at Washington Christian Academy, and it is really exciting to get to know all the new people that come by to our school. WCA has a lot of fun activities like a wide variety of sports, clubs, and thrilling festival days occasionally throughout the year! I recommend this school as one any student could come to, and it will change your life.
I have been attending WCA since Kindergarten, and now I am in 11th grade (12 years). I could not have been more happy and more blessed to be in an environment such as WCA. It's really great to be connected with your teachers on a personal level, yet also have great opportunities such as athletics and arts to get you prepared for college. There are SO many ways I have thrived in my talents and interests. If you're looking for a school, stop the search now and enroll at WCA! I wouldn't be happier anywhere else.
2 of my children have graduated from WCA and 1 is currently enrolled. The academic environment far exceeds that of any public or private school we know. There is plenty opportunity for each student to thrive with the various clubs, extra-curricular activities, and small class size. The school is also very diverse. It is located on a beautiful 60 acre semi-wooded lot in a very convenient location right off the InterCounty Connector.
Washington Christian Academy is a school full of christian spirits. I have been going to WCA since Kindergarten, the journey since has been tremendous. Moving from building to building, but finally finding our own building in Olney, Maryland. People make sure you feel included and they are great to be around. The teachers are always fun and make sure you understand the material they are teaching. Also, the actives the school hosts are extremely fun and creative. It is great to know that students get to have a say in what the school can do make things more fun. This year I am in 8th grade, and I hope to continue going to WCA for High School.
