Elementary School

WSCA’s Christian Elementary Program

   Proverbs 22:6 states, “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they’re old they will not turn from it.” At West Shore Christian Academy (WSCA), we take this charge to heart. Our Christian elementary school in Camp Hill provides an environment where children are viewed as special individuals created in God’s image with talents and gifts they can develop for His glory.

Your child’s early years serve as the foundation for their academic success and Christian faith. At WSCA, you’ll find a setting that blends strong academics, appropriate social development, and unapologetic faith so that each child grows academically, socially, and spiritually.

Learn how our elementary education program prepares the next generation by offering a comprehensive education that also meets the spiritual needs of even our youngest students.

Meeting the Academic and Spiritual Needs of Young Students

At West Shore Christian Academy, we believe in the importance of a mission-driven education. Through rigorous academics taught from an unwavering Christian perspective, we strive to sharpen young minds, deepen faith, and develop talent.

Our commitment is to partner with parents as we guide children through these formative years. Our dedicated and highly trained teachers have the skills necessary to teach, equip, and nurture the minds and hearts of our young students. Their example of a life lived for Christ fosters a Biblical foundation in the classroom.

Elementary school years are foundational in students’ lives as they begin to understand important concepts, basic beliefs and life principles. That’s why the curriculum at WSCA is challenging but accessible to students who put in their best effort. Our small class sizes ensure that, along with these challenges, each student receives the individual attention and support they need to succeed.

How Our Christian Elementary School Challenges and Supports Student Growth

As part of their education at WSCA, students are challenged to perform to the best of their personal abilities for the glory of God. We’ve carefully designed our academic curriculum to help students learn fundamental subjects while also providing developmentally appropriate enrichment activities. Standardized testing allows us to assess students to ensure they’re mastering the primary skills for their grade level. However, we never use test scores to label students or define their overall success.

Academics are a foundational element of elementary education. We also desire to help our students develop their faith, talents, and God-given gifts. Co-curricular activities infuse their studies with opportunities for wonder and curiosity. At WSCA, students will get to participate in weekly chapels, concert performances, field trips, intramural sports, and service and outreach projects in the local community.

We also offer a week-long J-Term program focused on career exploration and honing children’s interests.

By balancing a rigorous academic curriculum with co-curricular activities and spiritual development opportunities, we prepare students to be leaders in their communities and impact the world for Christ.

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.
