The young student asked his mother, preparing for the birth of her second child, if she was afraid. She paused a moment and then admitted that yes, she was a bit afraid. Her son encouraged her to “be strong and courageous,” (Joshua 1:9), a verse he had memorized in his class.
At Westminster Catawba Christian School, even the youngest children are nurtured in a safe setting where they are prepared spiritually, as well as academically. In another scenario, a fifth grade student learned of the extreme need in a depressed area of Rock Hill and worked with her parents to organize a donation drive. The elementary students worked together and provided several truckloads of supplies to the needy residents. They prayed for the residents and became the hands and feet of Jesus sharing His love with others.
Examples like these are seen often in the early education and elementary programs at Westminster Catawba Christian School as faculty and staff partner with parents to lay the foundation for future learning within a biblical worldview. Students learn and practice skills vital to success in the 21st century, emphasizing critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity. While developing a love of learning, students receive individualized instruction designed to meet their developmental needs at each stage of growth. Opportunities for learning go beyond paper and pencil tasks to incorporate application in real-life situations. We invite you to come see the engaging educational experience offered at WCCS!
