At WCCS, we are committed to developing the whole child: mind, body, and spirit.
As students grow and explore their God-given gifts and talents, WCCS strives to provide an outstanding experience for students from early childhood through high school.
There are endless opportunities for our students here at WCCS:
On both the Lower and Upper School campus, students have the opportunity to participate in worship teams that lead students, faculty and staff in worship during weekly chapel services.
There are a variety of Bible studies available for students on both the Upper and Lower School campus as well as mentoring opportunities for older students to lead younger students in devotionals. On the Lower School campus, a group of 4th and 5th graders are lead by a junior and senior each week before school in a time of Bible study. In addition, there are high school guys devotions and high school girls devotions for students to participate in each week.
This group meets and informs the student body of ways that God is on the move both locally and globally and to inspire fellow students to pray about ways they can get involved in Kingdom work.
This is a mentoring program for middle and high school students. A middle school student is paired with a high school student with similar interests. These students periodically encourage one another with notes, texts, small surprises, etc.
Odyssey of the Mind is an innovative educational program providing students from all over the world with creative problem-solving opportunities.
