Curriculum

Through an ambitious process, Windsor Christian Academy has developed a personalized curriculum to meet the standards set by the State of Maryland. This curriculum is written from a Christian perspective and has at its foundation these core values:

Prayer, Integrity, Faith, Global Outreach, Excellence, Innovation, and Service.

 The WCA curriculum is current and relevant to meet the needs of today’s child. The high quality curriculum is supplemented by the ABEKA curriculum. The ABEKA Curriculum is biblically based. The combination of these two curriculums used at WCA guide the daily instruction and lesson planning used by the teachers in the classrooms with the goal of optimal development of the whole child in all learning domains.  Both curriculums used at WCA are aligned to the Maryland Early Learning Standards and Healthy Beginnings. 

Each student engages in daily bible lessons and morning chapel. These requirements enable WCA to prepare each student with a Christian worldview. It is important that children have a foundation of biblical knowledge to meet the challenges that a child faces on a daily basis. The program offered promotes the development of the whole child. Academic outcomes are shared with parents as children are evaluated twice per school year. The findings of the evaluation are documented and shared with parents at parent’s conferences. The school uses more than adequate resources in conjunction with the curriculum to ensure the success of each student.
