Baby chicks were hatching at WCA this week!

Special thanks to 8th grader, Julia, for making this experience possible, and educating us on the hatching process. Students and staff were fascinated!

"I like being at WCA because of the size, being a small school, and because of the environment. All the people here are super nice and I like the privileges and freedoms 8th graders have. I want to stay here for high school because I like the curriculum and the way classes are taught.

-Landon, 8th grade

Veteran's Day Celebration

CHAPELS: WCA will host special Chapels on Nov 8th, the Wednesday before Veteran's Day. The Lower School Chapel will be led by Vietnam Veteran Steve Rusinko. Middle School Chapel will host Vietnam Veteran and Annapolis graduate Mark Mauriello, grandfather of Micah Roth.


Students are asked to wear RED, WHITE, and BLUE for this special day.

WALL OF HONOR DISPLAY: All WCA students received handouts for interviewing a veteran or military service person. Completed interview sheets will be displayed on a Wall of Honor. All students will visit the display in honor of Veteran's Day. Thank you, students, for returning your completed interviews for display.


Completed interviews need to be returned by Friday, Nov 10.

DONATIONS: WCA will collect donations for the VA Hospital in Salisbury during the week of Nov 6 - 10. Veterans will appreciate art supplies, card games, puzzle books, note cards, and baking mixes. Collection bins will be in the main lobby.

Thank you for your student's participation in these special activities!

Christmas Craft Club


WCA is proud to participate in Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child ministry, providing an opportunity for WCA students to share the love of Jesus with children around the world, many of whom will learn about Jesus for the first time! Shoeboxes will be collected through Nov 16. #AllHeart

All are welcome! Come join us!

Get ready for a week filled with gratitude! Each day will be filled with Thanksgiving fun, including a daily spirit wear theme and gratitude or service activity. In the spirit of gratitude, we are also asking parents and friends to help sustain our mission by making a gift to the WCA Hawk Fund this week.

Why We Give

Our WCA community has helped us support the mission and vision of our school by funding unique projects. Over the last year, we purchased a new set of classroom iPads and allocated funds to help equip the new WCA Annex. We also invest in the quarterly STEAM events created and developed by our staff to challenge the minds of our students. This year’s “Under the Sea” STEAM event was one such example. Educational space enhancements, activities, and events like these would not have been possible without your extremely generous and heartfelt donations.

We are coming to you again this year asking that you look into the future and help us dream even bigger. Please consider making a donation to our Hawk Fund during the Week of Giving. If your company has a matching program, please also consider filing the paperwork for that matching gift.

We are grateful for your continued prayers and support.
