ELEMENTARY SCHOOL (Children that are 6yrs and Up)

Our Elementary School is developmentally based. We promote a Christian learning foundation approach. The core subjects taught include Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. Each subject embeds literacy across the curriculum and critical thinking, all under the umbrella of a Christian worldview. Biblical references are made throughout the curriculum to support student’s academic progress as well as establish a strong biblical foundation for life.

Socially and emotionally, the students will recognize themselves as a unique individual having abilities, characteristics, feelings and interests. Physically, they will use their senses to assist and guide learning. Use sensory information to plan and carry out movements. They will demonstrate coordination and control of large muscles, eye-hand coordination and dexterity needed to manipulate objects. Combine a sequence of large motor skills with and without the use of equipment.

They will learn to regulate responses to needs, feelings and events. Develop positive relationship with peers, understand and follow routines and learn to adapt to change.

They will approach tasks, activities and problems with creativity, imagination and try new experiences and activities. They will demonstrate curiosity, initiative and persistence. They will actively and confidently engage in play as a means of exploration and learning

They will learn to demonstrate personal care and hygiene skills, awareness and understanding of healthy habits. Spiritually, students will develop a personal faith in Jesus Christ.

Assessments will be done periodically to track the progress of the student’s social and academic development and learning.

FINANCIAL OBLIGATION WCA relies on its tuition payments from parents to cover the operating costs for the school. Please note that all tuition due needs to be made on time to avoid dismissal from class attendance. Also, progress reports and final report cards will be withheld if accounts become delinquent and the child will be unable to be a part of graduation ceremonies if the account is not regularized.

Tuition will be processed on the 5th of every month for those on the monthly payment schedule. There will be a late charge of $30 for late payments and $25 fee for returned payments. Tuition is for all programs due to closures, absences, holidays, snow days, etc.
