The elementary and middle grades at WCS offer an arena for students to expand their academic pursuits as well as Biblical integration in language arts, math, history, and science. In addition to the traditional curriculum, students recieve further instruction in music, art, physical education, and keyboarding. A daily effort is made by the teachers and administration to encourage the development of the individual Christian character and leadership.
Extra-curricular activities add to the educational experience. WCS has an academic team for students in 4th and 5th grades. Field trips are a regular part of the school year and offer opportunities of "learning beyond the walls."

Our academic program promotes a Biblical view of life. The one distinguishing mark of a Christian school relates to that one unique reason for Christian education: to gain a knowledge of the world from God’s point of view (rather than man’s) through the application of principles in every area of the curriculum and school activity. This is the kernel of Christian education.
The academic program at WCS is a planned program. A Beka Curriculum is the core curriculum used by our elementary grades. Other curriculum is supplemented as needed by our teachers with the approval of our school board.

All subjects are taught in the light of God’s Word and are integrated with Biblical truth. Human relationships, both student/teacher and student/student, will be built on the basis of God’s teachings, whether in the classroom, on the athletic field, or in social situations.
A Bible class is taught daily in each class. All classes will use the NIV Bible. A NIV Bible will be on each class school supply list. Please make sure it is a complete version and not a storybook, etc.
All grades participate in a national achievement testing program annually. Per ACSI's recommendation, we use TerraNova 3 published by McGraw-Hill.
