A God-Centered, Other-Focused, and Kingdom-Minded Education
Our desire is to prepare students for their calling in God’s Kingdom. This means that our curriculum is fully infused with Biblical instruction while maintaining high academic standards. Students receive a comprehensive education which includes Biblical studies at every grade level, along with math, language arts, science, social studies, and enrichment in the arts, foreign language and physical education. Bible, reading, and math are at the core of our academic program beginning in our early education and elementary programs. Middle and high school students have the opportunity to select from a number of college prep, honors, advanced placement classes and electives.
Our school maintains dual accreditation through the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI - www.acsi.org) and AdvancED (www.advanc-ed.org). This means that all of our teachers are certified and meet the necessary educational and training requirements. In addition to being highly qualified, all faculty profess faith in Jesus Christ and are committed to the teaching of all subjects through a Biblical worldview.
We measure student progress, ability, and achievement through various methods, including Early Childhood developmental assessments such as the Dial 4 and SEARCH; Gifted Screenings using the SAGES Gifted Identification; annual standardized testing using the Terra Nova; and student participation in the SAT and ACT. Our desire is to meet a broad range of student needs through our EXCEL program, providing academic support and challenge to students with giftedness as well as learning differences so that all students may bless our world according to God’s call in their lives.
Westminster Catawba Christian School admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
