A PreK-12 classical Christian school near Saline, MI
Washtenaw Christian Academy's Vision is to prepare and equip servant leaders to positively impact a world in need of Christ.
Washtenaw Christian Academy offers preschool through twelfth grade students a rich educational environment and experience that is based on the unchanging Word of God.
Academically, we hold our teachers, administration, and students to high standards in the classroom and in life. We design the entire framework of WCA to ensure each student receives the attention, the instruction, and the opportunities necessary to realize his or her potential--within the school, the family, the church, the community, and the world, all to the glory of God.
With a history spanning four decades, WCA is the only Classical Christian PreK-12 Academy in Washtenaw County. The school's accreditation through the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) recognizes our commitment to teaching frm a Christian worldview. Our accreditation through AdvancED acknowledges that we operate as a college preparatory school. WCA also participates as a member of the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA).
WCA prepare our students for the next level, whether that means helping a PreK student grasp basic concepts of classroom learning or inspiring a high-school senior to pursue a degree at a major university. The fruit of our expertise and dedication show through in the form of high GPA's, test scores consistently well above state averages, and alumni placement in some of the finest colleges and universities in the nation.
Situated on a 23-acre campus at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Moon Road, the two story 73,000 square foot school building features a full-sized gymnasium, a cafeteria, a music room, art room, a school library, a computer lab, and a Discovery Center equipped to administer National Institute for Learning Development educational therapy.

Changes abound, but to say we're trying something new at Washtenaw Christian Academy is to miss the point entirely.
Adopting the Classical Christian education model is a major step for everyone at WCA. It has been exciting, encouraging, bold, and different from what we have grown accustomed, but what we're doing this year is by no means new. Rather, through much prayer and consideration, WCA made the decision to concentrate on the single most tried and true method in history, one proven over centuries.

This year, as we embrace the Classical Christian model for our education philosophy, we're also renewing our focus on one of the foundational elements of the WCA mission: prayer. On the one hand, depending on prayer is no change at all--we have relied on prayer every day of our existence. On the other hand, we are making a big change this year that you'll be sure to notice:
We will only be having one school fundraising campaign--the Annual Fund Campaign.
Join with us as our prayer partner throughout the year and as you feel led, direct your giving to support the work and mission of WCA.
