Our desire is to provide an academic environment which inspires students to deepen their understanding of Christ as revealed in Scripture and to experience the life-changing implications of the Gospel.

Day of Service

Our middle school and high school students participate in a Day of Service every year. They volunteer to spend their day serving in various non-profits across the Central PA area. This day has proven to be a great experience for both the student and the ministry they are helping.

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.
