Mediocre. They do okay for such a small school but kids deserve more. They also cheat at athletics and breed poor sports.

Good school - very nice teachers that care about students, small world atmosphere with individual attention where everyone knows who you are, above average academics seen by SAT and other standardized test scores, and great Christian fellowship. Facilities aren't the Taj Mahal by any means, but are secure and kept reasonably clean. Ignoring cosmetics and minor issues here and there and focusing on the big picture, I'd recommend West-Mont without hesitation.

Very competent, certified teachers that REALLY care about kids! Accredited by ACSI & Middle States Assoc. Genuine Christian school - but not affiliated with any particular church or denomination Busing provided from 12 local school districts

We have been a WCA family for many years and consider the school to be a blessing to our family. The classes have been challenging and not lacking in quality. The Elem. bldg. has A/C and so does part of the HS, that's part of a having older buildings. Let's put more focus on what happens INSIDE the building. The curriculum is continually reviewed and updated. WCA is a chapter of the National Honor Society, not an easy designation to attain. ANY school is going to have some issues, as does any organization we deal with, but when a staff member can stop to pray with your child AND teach them what they need to know, it means the school has a heart for its students AND is firmly rooted in academics. Look into it for yourself, pray, and then decide.

School has good sports program and nice teachers and workers. But, Administration is disorganized and have cut teachers and staff to the expense of student's education. One teacher teaches multiple classes beyond their expertise; computers are archaic; many rooms do not have sufficient heat; there is no air conditioning in the high school.There is no nurse or office for ill students. Parents are charged a book and tech fee when students use books that are between 10-20 years old. Computers are archaic, Some students that cannot be handled in Public school attend and disrupt classroom teaching and students; there is little help for them. Not worth the tuition cost.

Caring teachers, great education, strong faith support, small class sizes, and personal attention. I can't imagine sending my children to any other school. We have been pleased with every aspect of West-Mont Christian Academy since our children started attending more than five years ago. Every teacher I've met is there because they want to be there and love teaching and spreading God's love. West-Mont is everything we wanted in a school for our children.

My girls have been attending West-Mont since the second grade. They have really gown to be well rounded young women. Their faith is strong and they live lives the honor Jesus Christ. I would not have them in any other school. West-Mont is awesome!

A great well-balanced school that offers advanced academics and AP classes as well as learning support programs. Fine arts, athletics, missions program, and most important ... the desire to see young men an women come to serve God and others.

A caring Christian environment with a small class size. Students are encouraged to use their abilities in a strong academic program. We were pleased with the personal attention our children received, which would not have been possible in a large public school.

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.
