Wiscasset Christian Academy
WHY WISCASSET CHRISTIAN?
HOW IS WCA DIFFERENT?
Traditional teaching method
There have been hundreds of new teaching methods over the last 50 years. It seems the more money spent, and the more methods developed, the less effective education becomes for our children. Wiscasset Christian has a teacher-directed approach that will give every student a solid foundation to be successful.
If you come in for a visit you will see students who are very respectful of each other, do not disrupt the classroom, and have developed character. Our teachers create this environment by instilling character traits that allow all students to thrive!
Bible study is recognized here as of fundamental importance. It augments the study of English, history, geography, and science. A knowledge of the Bible is one of the greatest educational assets anyone can have in addition to the moral and spiritual values resulting from the study.
WCA tests students yearly with a national achievement test. Every year, our school ranks well above the national average proving our methods give an excellent education.
BEGIN WITH A STRONG FOUNDATION
Four- and five year-olds are eager to learn, and their parents are delighted with their achievements after attending pre-school and kindergarten at WCA. Students enjoy a balanced program in which care has been taken to consider every developmental facet. They are given a good foundation in basic skills and are motivated to look forward to elementary school.
Every child who completes kindergarten at Wiscasset Christian is able to read. This is due to the A Beka Book kindergarten program that is phonics based at its very core. This approach gives students a solid foundation for developing exceptional reading skills.
"I am very thankful for my time at WCA. It not only provided me with a solid academic foundation for further education, but also an environment where a Christian life was encouraged in sports, social activities and the classroom."

“During my teenage years, WCA was an important part of my physical, spiritual, and mental development. WCA was crucial in preparing me for college and life in the service of our Savior. I am thankful for WCA's continued ministry of preparing young people for a life of service to Christ.”
