Our Mission . . .
Wilmington Christian Academy, as a ministry of Grace Baptist Church, exists to assist parents in teaching students to glorify Jesus Christ in the pursuit of spiritual, academic, physical, and social excellence.
Our History . . .
Wilmington Christian Academy was founded in 1969 as a ministry of Grace Baptist Church. Since that time the Academy has grown to be the largest private school in southeastern North Carolina. Serving students in grades K3 - 12, WCA fulfills all requirements of the North Carolina Division of Non-Public Instruction and is a member of the American Association of Christian Schools and the North Carolina Christian School Association.
Our Mission in Practice . . .
We desire to lead our students to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and then assist them in conforming their lives to His image. The spiritual, social and academic atmosphere at WCA is designed to produce productive, intelligent young people who are prepared and willing to take the message of Jesus Christ into our society.
We consider our school as an extension of the home; therefore, it is imperative that parents create an atmosphere at home that is supportive of the goals and programs of the Academy. Our commitment to high standards is evident by our expectations regarding personal responsibility in dress, conduct, respect and academic achievement.
Our dedicated and qualified teaching staff works to give your child the academic, social and spiritual foundation needed to excel in life. Proper discipline mixed with compassion creates an environment that is conducive to learning.
Our school is located on an 85-acre campus at the beginning of I-40. The complex consists of a large auditorium building, 2 educational buildings, a fine arts center, gymnasium, full-service cafeteria, 3 athletic fields and 2 playgrounds. Our students enjoy computers in all classrooms and interactive white boards, an excellent 25-station on-line computer lab, 2 well-equipped science labs, a weight room, and a media center with Internet access.
