Wickenburg Christian Academy Ratings & Reviews
Life changing! All four of our kids started at the WCA Preschool, and now range from Kinder to 10th Grade. We are grateful for the daily investment the teachers make to encourage growth ... certainly academic, but more importantly, spiritual and relational.
I can personally say not as a mother but as a student who went to the school in middle school ( I am now 28) that it was below average. I started to go to the Christian academy because I thought I would get more one on one help because I was behind in math from public school however it didn't help. Every math class day I would just pack my things and go to the class that taught math for year prior. It made me feel very self conscious and I still didn't improve. I thought science and history were lacking and the Christian teachings could have been MUCH better. Memorizing flash cards daily were such a dull and lifeless way to learn the word and if you didn't memorize it before break you didn't get to go out. In science I spent the entire half year I was there on only the bones of the body nothing more. I felt everyone was nice but not necessarily genuine and I wish there would have been more in class bible reading and discussion instead of just flashcards or projector. Now that I am a mother I would not have my child go to the school. I am currently looking into a Christian school in Goodyear az.
My daughter just started Kindergarten here this year, and I am more than thrilled that she attends this classical Christian school. God and Country are highlighted, and the students are taught respect for authority, things not so common in the public schools nowadays. Each week Chapel is held where a brief spiritual teaching is given and worship songs are sung. The pledge is recited each morning. Uniforms keep the children looking polished and encourage an environment for learning. The class sizes are smaller, so the kids really get extra attention from their teachers. There are 11 students in my daughter's class. It has a four-day week, Monday through Thursday, which I appreciate but might be a schedule conflict for others. My daughter absolutely loves going to school, loves her teacher, loves the administrator, and is getting smarter each day, all while having fun! The after-school Arts Reaching Kids (ARK) program is great, too, and my daughter is really enjoying the beginning dance class.
Terrific school -- great teachers, fun environment and strong academics! We love having our kids at a Christian school!
I really enjoy seeing our 2 kids come home with a big smile on their faces... The teachers go ubove and beyond to help each child.
