The Value Behind a West Shore Christian Academy Education

Our goal is to learn about your child’s unique gifts and abilities and foster these in a warm and caring environment. You’ll soon find that the financial sacrifice you sow will reap an abundant harvest in your child’s life.

Academics

Your child’s WSCA experience starts in the classroom. Low student to faculty ratios ensure your student is seen, heard and given one-on-one attention to spur them to new academic heights. Our highly talented and caring educators will be there every step of the way.

Community Activities

As your child explores who they are in our safe and welcoming environment, we provide ample activities so that they can discover their unique gifts and talents. Athletics, the arts and a variety of student organizations give your child a sense of belonging among those who share their interests.

Unapologetic Faith

In everything we do, from the classroom to the sports field, we want our students to boldly express their faith in Christ. We provide abundant opportunities for discipleship and faith-building, including corporate prayer, weekly chapels, retreats and more.

Financial Aid

We believe that every student deserves the opportunity to have a Christian education. No matter your economic level, you are welcome at WSCA.

WSCA is part of the Christian School Association of Greater Harrisburg (CSAGH), a unified Christian school district that annually awards about $1.0 million in financial aid. If you’re not sure you can afford a Christian education for your family, financial aid may be available. We are proud to provide need-based financial aid to qualifying applicants who have sacrificed to make Christian education a priority for their family.

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.

More information will be sent via email early next week to explain student, teacher, and parent expectations for schoolwork during the closure.
