Weston Christian Academy is a K3-8th grade program whose instructional practices accentuate the classical appreciation for truth, virtue, and beauty from a Christian perspective. With a classically-inspired curriculum, education includes logic, rhetoric, science, mathematics, Bible, history, grammar, and attention to classical literature. Latin enhances our approach, and students score in the upper segment of international testing. Spanish instruction is an asset given our geographic location. Our strong core curriculum is augmented by our fine arts program. Music begins in preschool and advances to instrumental education in elementary and beyond. Weston Christian Academy has something rare even on a national scale: a full elementary orchestra. While we definitively lean towards the classical, our faculty embraces research-based best practices and integrative instructional opportunities in technology. Our students then comfortably operate in the spheres of the classical and modernity.

We believe biblical application is paramount in encouraging students to live a life that contributes to societal good. Whether delivering a truckload of food to a neighboring school community in need, helping to build a clean water well in Liberia, or supporting orphans and widows in Uganda, students are taught to care. Our parents share this worldview which creates a continuity between home and school. This is the tipping point for our success. Blessed by a highly diverse school community that shares a singleness of purpose, our students are selected for advanced studies in both private and public high schools, and those schools comment on the quality of character and education our alumni display.
