With upright heart he shepherded them and guided them with his skillful hand.
Psalm 78:72

Westminster Christian Academy offers a Christ-centered excellent education for our students, nurturing a Christian worldview as the foundation for academic and personal life. We are an academy of learning based upon reformed theology, a belief system that is based on God's Word alone and focused on the nature and character of God.

We continually evaluate our high school academic program to discern the need for new and different classes that will challenge our students. During high school, students are asked to think in higher categories and to think critically. They are asked to discern truth from fiction and to engage in their learning by dialoguing with teachers on the issues that confront our world today. Our vision keeps our divisional goals constantly before us: our elementary school lays the foundation, our middle school develops the skills, and our high school provides the opportunity to put all of this together. The goal of Westminster is to prepare our students to succeed in college and beyond, to prepare them to think, and to move them away from merely regurgitating information in order to be ready to serve and lead in a variety of ways.

We offer a wide range of academic options from basic college prep classes to AP classes, encouraging students to become critical thinkers and lifelong learners.

Middle and High School Bible classes are taught by ordained ministers who belong to denominations affiliated with the North American Presbyterian and Reformed Council.

The Westminster Catechism, which contains historical statements summarizing the truths of scripture in question and answer form, is taught in most grade levels.

Co-curricular options are available, including Music, Art, Clubs, and Sports.

Our faculty is excellent in their field and embraces and engages in the discipleship of students.
