WCA's new Head of School, Eric VanDerhoof comes to WCA from Waterford, MI, where he has been teaching history, biblical studies, and Latin at Bloomfield Christian School, an ACCS founding and accredited school in Bloomfield Hills, MI (Metro Detroit).  During his 25+ years in education, he has served as teacher, headmaster, consultant, and curriculum writer.  He has been committed to a classical Christian approach to education since 1998 when he worked for Veritas Academy (Lancaster, PA) and Veritas Press.  Eric earned his B.R.E. at Cornerstone University in 1984, where he also met his wife, Lisa.  They have been blessed with 6 children: Kevin (Rebekah), Jonathan, Matthew, Alicia, Christa (who is resting in the arms of her Savior, Jesus Christ), and Valerie.  They are also proud grandparents of Eldon and Ulrik, with Baby VanDerhoof #3 expected imminently!  He enjoys reading, sports of all kinds, growing African Violets, interacting with students, being with family and sharing the stories of God’s faithfulness throughout history.  Eric is excited to join the team that God has gathered at WCA to continue the good work that faithful servants have established over the past 39 years.
