Why do the public education systems fail? Because they have eliminated the author and designer of all knowledge and purpose. When Christ is at the center of education, not only is it college prep, but it is transformational.
Learning is no longer about an aimless acquisition of knowledge. Learning becomes the process of discovering the invisible qualities of God.
Learning is transformed into a hope-filled adventure in a world designed by a loving God.
Athletics is no longer a competition where victory is the ultimate aim. Competition becomes a venue where the virtues of unity, humility, bravery, and integrity are developed.
Athletic competition is transformed into an opportunity to employ virtue.
The arts are no longer about the process of merely making things, expressing things without a connection to God – the source of all beauty. The creation of beauty is coupled with a purpose connected to the Creator.
The arts are transformed into a pursuit of reclaiming beauty in a fallen world for Jesus Christ.
The classroom is no longer a place where content is merely delivered. It becomes a safe harbor for the lives of the young, a place where caring teachers invest their time, energy, and God-given passion as an act of love for students.
Teaching is transformed into an opportunity for every teacher to show every student that they are fearfully and wonderfully made and that they are capable of accomplishing remarkable things.
The student is no longer a person defined only by his/her ability and environment. The student has a clear identity as a child of the living God, endowed with gifts and talents waiting to be offered in service to God.
Identity is transformed from a performance-driven view of self into a joyful understanding of what it means to belong to the family of God.
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” – Romans 12:2
We see each student as uniquely designed by God with a specific purpose. At Western Christian, students thrive academically, and grow in their walk with the Lord. It is a life changing education. Western has been shaping lives since 1920 and understands the importance of God first in everything, including academics. Because God is Creator and the author of beauty and complexity, our Christ-centered curriculum is rigorous, challenging, and exceptional. He guides faculty and students to reach for excellence, to discover and enhance their God-given talents and abilities.
At every grade level (PreK-12), Western provides an environment that equips each child, enabling them to reach their full potential academically and spiritually. Teachers and staff are dedicated Christ followers and excited to be a part of each child’s life.
The minute you step onto our campuses you will see, hear, and feel Christ’s love throughout. We invite you to tour WCS and visit with our staff, faculty, and students. We would love to see you!
“But now, O LORD, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter;
And all of us are the work of Your hand.” —Isaiah 64:8
