WCA CONCORDIA  SCHOOL + HOME


WHAT IS WCA CONCORDIA
WCA CONCORDIA is an excellent collaborative study experience designed to meet the needs of the Christian family seeking the quality of classical Christian education provided by WCA while having much of the parental involvement and flexibility they would find in homeschooling. This K-6 program allows for the parents to come under the WCA umbrella and invest instructional time with their children in the home setting. Partnering well with WCA will help their children achieve a high degree of academic excellence and Christian virtue. The student is enrolled as a WCA student but completes the majority of the academic work at the satellite campus (home) with academic support and oversight, accountability, and enrichment opportunities.

OUR MISSION
WCA CONCODIA is (Latin for harmony/agreement) is committed to quality education through the lens of a biblical worldview in a unique partnership with WCA and its mission to integrate biblical truth with academic excellence so that our students will become genuine leaders committed to impacting the world through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

ADVANTAGES OF WCA CONCORDIA vs HOMESCHOOLING (THE SHORT LIST)
Identification as a WCA student
Academic support and oversight
Regular and open communication with the program director
Academic program syllabus listing course objective, required texts, scope and sequence
Weekly lesson planning provided by WCA teachers
Video instruction available on Google classroom, especially for new concepts

WHAT THIS IS NOT
This is not part-time schooling. Although students would be on campus one day a week, education occurs five days per week. Students are expected to work at home on the satellite days to complete assignments.

This is not a homeschool group or co-op. We appreciate the success of homeschooling; however, collaborative education is something different: a comprehensive, unified curriculum under the co-teaching of professionals and parents.

This is not professional tutoring. Tutoring is specific to one subject or area. By contrast, a collaborative school functions from a holistic paradigm of education that seeks to shape students in every area of learning.

This is not traditional private school. Though we work in partnership with WCA, collaborative education requires a larger commitment of time and effort from the parents in the direct education of their students.
