Imagine..... a Christian Boarding School in rural Virginia, USA, where every student is seen, known, heard, loved, valued, and shaped as a whole person.
Where learning has no boundaries, stimulating students to think critically and integrate learning and life experiences with Biblical truths.
Where twenty-first-century academic and life skills courses empower students to act as co-owners in the learning process, making a difference in God's kingdom.
Where students are inspired to dream, take risks and cultivate their gifts and talents entrusted by God.
And where relationships, mentorship, and service intentionally extend beyond the classroom and are reflective of Christ's life-on-life ministry. Welcome to that place. Welcome to Williamsburg Christian Academy. .
