Wake Christian Academy is a great school. My husband and I have only been pleased with the Christian worldview the teachers proclaim. The academics are above par, which can be seen in the annual test scores. Students who graduate are accepted at many of the top colleges and universities. I am proud to be a WCA parent and to have our daughter enrolled in their program.
Wake Christian is an AWESOME school! Both of my children have attended since kindergarten and love it. We gave them a choice to attend public school and they chose to stay at WCA. No school is perfect, not even WCA, but the comments here are extreme. Our experience has been a good one. There is always room for improvement, but I don't understand trashing the school's reputation by saying it's 'horrible.' This year's class has students attending UNC (3 students accepted), NC State, Campbell University, Liberty University Appalachian State University and multiple others. Those universities would not have accepted those students if they were not prepared. WCA is not for everyone, but it is a great experience if you come in with the right attitude.
This is by far the worst school ever. All they do is baby the kids and the classes are way out of control. Much worse then public school. And as someone else said the roof leaks all the time and you would think that paying all the money you pay to go there they could afford a roof. And the whole building is falling apart. The walls have cracks in the everywhere. And they especially do NOT prepare you for the real world.
This is not a christian school at all. the building are terrible and the kids are not christian. if you think this is a good christian school then go and check it out for a day. the classes are out of control and the building is terrible the gym leaks when it rains. you would expect if you had to pay six grand a year they could afford a roof on the gym. but no the teachers are terrible and i dont believe in some of the teachings.
As an alumni of both WCA and UNC, I placed out of some courses thanks to AP exams, and while I wouldnt want a HS that was academically at the same level of college I felt prepared for college and gained valuable life lessons while at WCA. I felt my teachers cared not just about my academics, but me.
I was there from kindergarten all the way to Senior year, and let me tell you, this school is a joke. They do not prepare you whatsoever for the real world, and my first year of college has been very challenging because of that. They shelter kids way too much here. They don't prepare you educationally either. The math department here is the biggest joke I've ever seen, and even though multiple people have complained about it, they have done nothing about it. The teachers do not care at all, and sometimes are bigger bullies than the kids are. Everything was fine until I hit middle school. That's when I realized what this school was really about. If you have a lot of money and fit the mold of the typical preppy rich kid, you'll do fine. But if you're just an average kid like I was, prepare for the worst, or better yet, just get out of there. This school is not worth your money, trust me, I was there.
This school HORRIBLE. The kids get bullied even more than public school. i highly don't recommend it.
My daughter has attended k-11 and loves it. My grandson has attended k-4 and loves it. Christ-centered education and a family atmosphere.
Teachers wouldn't do anything to stop bullying and didn't help or support hardly any of the students.
Education, Discipline, and Faith. What more could you ask for when the mission of this school is to truly build Godly character thru every aspect of life. This is shown by the academic expectations, thru out reach, on the play ground, and just building long last friendships. Small community that supports one another. Older campus but they spend their money wisely. k-12 campus with sports, fine arts, high academics and so much more. Very Blessed to have this school in our lives.
I love this school. While growing up I attended schools in an area where the teachers didn't care. Bullying ran rampant and the programs were awful. I was very nervous for my son to start school. I was recommended to Wake Christian by fellow church members. My son could not have a better set of Kindergarten teachers. They have great patience and wonderful interaction with the children. They teach of the love of Jesus and have no tolerance for bullying. Your child feels loved and appreciated for being exactly who Christ made them to be. I couldn't ask for a better blessing. Nothing is more important to me than having my child be able to feel loved and cared about in his learning environment. He has excelled greatly because of this. Thank You Jesus!
I think Wake Christian Academy is the best school of all schools. The students get one on one if they need it. Thestaff and teachers ar the best.
As an alumni of WCA, I can proudly say that the lessons I've learned and taken with me through my college years have helped me to develop one thing that everyone should have: character.
We transferred our son to WCA last year. We regret not doing so earlier. He has learned so much and loves going to school now. The teachers first priority is the success of the student and they do what ever it takes to see it happen. We could not be happier!!
This is a great school no matter what grade you are going to be attending. They have awesome programs in art, music, academics, sports, and so much more.
