That’s a great question.   When it comes to choosing a Christian School for your children, you want to make sure that you choose a school that is committed to preparing students for the best possible opportunity for good success.


Wade Christian Academy was founded in the late 1970’s because the beliefs that we held most dear and upon which we based our lives were being circumvented by the public schools.  It was unrealistic to expect that a public school would or could teach and instill into our young people, our Christian values.  Our goal is best stated in Psalm 145:4, “One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.” A young person does not go through Wade Christian Academy; rather, Wade Christian Academy goes through the young person.  Our programs minister to the whole person – spirit, soul, and body (1 Thessalonians 5:23).  It is our desire that upon graduation from WCA, it may be said of our students that they have “increased in wisdom and stature and favour with God and man” (Luke 2:52).




Starting in kindergarten and continuing through the twelfth grade, our classrooms are designed to insure that excellence in teaching and learning takes place. We primarily use the ABeka curriculum, which is considered to be the finest curriculum in Christian communities.  We are committed to maintaining moderate class sizes in support of what we believe to be a healthy teacher-student ratio.  We believe the combination of the two provide the framework necessary to help students reach their fullest potential.



Strong academics, however, aren’t our only emphasis.  As a distinctly Christian school, we also believe that training our students to be strong Christians in a strange world is also just as important.The students at WCA are instructed in daily Bible classes and enjoy attending chapel programs on a regular basis.  In addition to this, all of our high school students are encouraged to serve in a ministry of their choice in their local church.



At WCA we love athletics! We believe that a strong athletics program provides a great environment for developing diligence, teamwork, character, and an attitude of winning and losing graciously. We offer basketball, soccer, softball, and volleyball.  Our sports program is led by godly men and women who use their coaching influence to help our young people develop their athletic skills to full potential and our teams often find themselves in the state championships!



At WCA we provide many avenues for our students to develop their creative talents.  We offer music lessons, speech and drama instruction, and an opportunity for them to compete artistically in the FACCS Fine Arts Competition each school year.  Our students consistently earn the highest of awards as they compete each year.
