Tuition and Fees Information
Wake Christian Academy is honored to partner with families in providing children an excellent Christian education. The tuition and fees outlined in the tables below represent an investment in your child’s academic and spiritual future. Our philosophy looks to college and beyond, where students grow into adults who have the knowledge and values to impact the world for Christ.
We are also committed to making a WCA education accessible to as many families possible and have included information below about how to apply for tuition assistance.
The Value of a Christian Education at WCA
There are many college-prep schools that focus solely on stringent academics. At Wake Christian Academy, we have high academic standards, but also focus on the whole child. Social development, leadership skills, and spiritual growth are all integrated into our K-12 college-prep curriculum.
We help students discover their identity and purpose in Christ by integrating biblical truth in all areas. Daily Bible studies, weekly chapel, mission initiatives, and a biblical worldview taught in every class nurture each student’s faith.
Our test scores across all grades are well above state and national averages. We also have excellent college admission test scores:
SAT Scores (3-year average for 2017-2019)
Wake Christian Academy: 1176
North Carolina: 1085
United States: 1044
ACT Scores (average for 2019)
Wake Christian Academy: 23
North Carolina: 18.4
United States: 20.7
Students learn that true Christian leadership begins with service. Intentional, engaging, and age-appropriate service learning is a vital part of our educational program. Students also develop leadership skills through opportunities to perform during worship, speak at school gatherings, and share testimonials.
Teachers model and encourage respect, kindness, and honesty within the school community, helping students to build healthy relationships based-on Christian values.
