Letter From Head of School
I am often asked the question, "What makes Westminster Christian Academy different from public and private schools?" I answer by focusing first and foremost on Westminster's commitment to honor Jesus Christ in all aspects of its program and reliance upon the Bible as the source of all truth. Certainly, these are the philosophical underpinnings at the core of all credible Christian schools. That being understood, I believe the uniqueness of the Westminster experience lies with the teachers and staff who stand before our students each day. It is our teachers who make the difference in "enabling students to discover and embrace a biblical view of the world and integrate that view into every area of life."
Apart from parents, teachers have the most powerful influence on our lives. I serve in a Christian school today because of the example and influence of a teacher and coach at Eastern Christian High School in New Jersey. This dedicated teacher challenged me and gave me a vision for how God might use me in the field of Christian education. I also have witnessed the profound impact of Westminster teachers on our three children. Often my wife and I will listen to our children express an opinion or explain a belief and recognize the fact that they came to such a position while students at WCA. Westminster teachers played a major role in shaping their Christian worldview.
What is most distinctive about Westminster Christian Academy? Teachers who help students know what they believe and why they believe it, and give them opportunities to integrate that knowledge into their lives through leadership, service, and the application of learning.
We invite you to visit the Westminster Christian Academy website in order to capture a picture of the character and vision of our school.
In His Service,
Head of School
