Message from the Headmaster


Welcome to Westside Christian Academy!  If you are in the midst of making educational decisions for a child in preschool, kindergarten, elementary school or high school, I invite you to take a look at WCA.  Founded by a small group of parents, Westside Christian Academy has been serving Christian families in the Cleveland area since 1996. As a Classical Christian school, we use time-tested content and methodology, a Christ-centered curriculum that is academically rigorous, and provide a very nurturing environment in which to grow.

I know choosing the best method of schooling for your child is not an easy task, nor one that should be taken lightly.  Your choice must consider not only the quality of the academic program, but also the impact that education will have on your child’s foundational beliefs.  At WCA we believe the three key institutions that shape a child are the home, the church, and the school and children are served best when all three institutions point them in the same direction.

Our parents know that ultimately what their children believe about God, the world, and morality will directly impact who they are to become.  They choose to partner with us because at WCA our staff is committed to educating students in wisdom and daily reinforcing to them the truth of God’s word.   If this approach to education resonates with you, if you are looking for a school that reinforces a Christ-centered worldview that you teach at home, then we invite you to visit our school. 

May God guide you in your search for the right environment for your child.
