Middle School

Growing in Character & Integrity

Middle school is an important season of identity development. During these years, pre-teens are asking themselves big questions like:

“Who am I?”
“Where do I belong?”
“What is my purpose in life?”

 

At WCA, students are intentionally guided as they develop a biblical worldview and discover their God-given gifts. Our character development initiatives are centered around Christian values, building positive friendships, preventing bullying, and how to apply scriptural wisdom to resolve conflicts. This fosters a culture of respect where students learn to become young men and women of integrity.

Developing Gifts & Talents

Middle school is the prime time to try new things. We encourage students to get involved in extracurricular activities, find out what they love, and build friendships based on shared interests.
