They will soar on wings like Eagles... Isaiah 40:31

Our Overall Goal

First grade marks an important milestone as students finally feel like part of a “big” school and begin to feel more independent. Their social skills are maturing and academic concepts “click” as they’re able to grasp reading and abstract mathematical principles.

In keeping with WCCA’s goal of “educating the whole child,” we strive to provide a well-rounded and systematic first-grade program.  Specifically, our goal is to never lose sight of the individuality of each child and yet to keep the class as a whole motivated and academically challenged throughout the year.
