School History

In 1973, members of Bible Baptist Church opened grades 1-8 on their property in Shiremanstown. Eighty-four students enrolled that first year at Bible Baptist School. By 1978, both kindergarten and high school had been added, and, in 1981, the school and church celebrated their first graduating class.

For the next 15 years, the campus underwent a series of renovations and additions to accommodate the growing school. The school was accredited in 1994.

In 2017, the Christian School Association of Greater Harrisburg acquired West Shore Christian Academy joining with Harrisburg Christian School to form the first Christian school system in the midstate.

WSCA School Temporary Closure Announcement due to COVID-19

WSCA School Closure Announcement

Out of an abundance of caution, West Shore Christian Academy is following other local school districts’ decision to close beginning Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 27, 2020. We will plan to resume school on Monday, March 30, 2020. It is important to note that, at this time, WSCA does not have any confirmed cases of COVID-19.

During this closure, we will be implementing a distant learning plan in an attempt to redeem instructional time so we can continue to fulfill state instructional hour requirements. As we communicated last night, next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (March 16-19) will be vacation days for the students as faculty and staff report for in-service to begin implementing our distant learning plan. More information will be sent via email early next week to explain student, teacher, and parent expectations for schoolwork during the closure.
