The Wake Christian Academy Difference

Education is one of the most important investments you will make in your child’s life. At Wake Christian Academy, we believe that your child’s spiritual growth is just as important as his or her academic advancement and that Christ is to be the leader in learning and in life. Founded in 1966, Wake Christian Academy includes kindergarten, elementary, middle school, and high school. Our vision and mission guide all of our instruction, curriculum, and interactions with students and families. We invite you to discover how Wake Christian can equip your child for a life of Christian discipleship, leadership, and service in this video from Mike Woods, head of school.


Our Vision

The vision of Wake Christian Academy is to emphasize the preeminence of Christ in life and learning. (Colossians 1:18)

Our Mission

Our mission includes the three P’s: to partner with the home and church; to provide a Christ-centered education; and to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

  • To impart fundamental skills for a life of Christian service
  • To build character, responsibility, godliness, and thrift
  • To teach enduring patriotism and to develop good citizenship
  • To function as a missionary outreach to students and others who may be unsaved in order to bring them to a saving knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
