Headmaster's Welcome

Thank you for your interest in Whitesburg Christian Academy, and welcome to our website. I hope that you will take time to explore the site and learn more about us. Whether you are a member of our school family or are a prospective student, parent, or teacher, we hope you find the information provided on this site helpful. 

What makes the Academy unique is the strong partnership between parents, Church and school. We are committed to Kingdom Education, believing that home, church, and school should have a consistent purpose and message in preparing students to engage our culture with their faith. We seek to build a strong Biblical worldview in the hearts and minds of our students and to prepare them academically to go wherever God takes them. We believe the best learning happens in a face to face relationship between a teacher and student. Our students are to be well known as passionate followers of Christ and well-trained servant leaders. A key verse we look to is Luke 5:11: "…they left everything and followed Him." 

While this will answer many of your questions, I realize that it may generate new ones. I invite you to call or visit the Academy. Our dedicated faculty and staff welcome the opportunity to tell you more about what makes us unique.

May God bless your search for the right educational choice for your child.
