    "For full disclosure, I have been a teacher at WCA for a year and a half now. To speak briefly as a faculty member, my overall happiness at work is such that I would decline moving to another school in the area even if a pay raise were offered. Our student body takes pride in achievement; students who have an "I don't care about school" attitude would have a hard time fitting in here. On the other hand, our student body seems generous and makes room for any new student who is making a good effort to get along and be part of the school. My son loves the Pre-K program and we look forward to enrolling our daughter next year. The Gospel is not something stapled on to the side of the school in a chapel service or obligatory Bible class but is the axle around which our efforts, affections, and worldview revolve. Christ, crucified for sinners, reconciles his people to the Father by his atoning death and secures our justification by his resurrection. We can both approach education itself as knowing the Creator better through the creation and approach each child as someone made in the image of God, worthy of respect."

    "I would give WCA 0 stars if I could. Westminster is a small, rural school that is lacking with it's amenities. Westminster has very poor educational material and the teachers are not qualified nor excited for learning. The leadership at Westminster is extremely poor and are very one sided when it comes to topics such as bullying. The students are very cliquey and ungodly people and I would NEVER suggest for you to consider Westminster."

    "Westminster is an excellent school. I attended WCA PreK-12th grade, and I have since returned as an employee. I have never met such caring teachers and staff that are genuinely interested in their students' lives and spiritual well-being. My teachers invited my classmates and me to their houses just to hang out and fellowship together, and they were always available when we needed someone to talk to and pray with. Academically, I was challenged and felt very well prepared for college when I got to UGA. Two of my teachers at WCA were renowned UGA professors: Dr. Jonathan Evans and Dr. Fritz Schaefer. Both Dr. Evans and Dr. Schaefer have served as President of WCA's Board of Directors at different times, and both are still heavily involved with the school. I honestly cannot say enough good things about WCA. It truly felt like home to me. I loved every minute I spent there as a student, and I love working there now! I HIGHLY recommend this school!"

    "We love WCA. I have children in both upper and lower school and our experience has been excellent. The class sizes are small which allows for more individualized instruction. WCA provides a classical education. Tuition is lower than most private schools in the area. The faculty and staff show genuine care and concern for my children. I feel blessed to have my children attend WCA."

    "Westminster Christian Academy is a very small school in a rural area. Tuition is too high for the education and environment provided. This upper school does not appear to be very student centered, therefore too much focus is on what can students and families do for the school. There are some good teachers, but some appear burned out or lack necessary qualifications. The administration lacks leadership and accountability towards the teachers. For instance, some teachers and administrators did not address serious issues (e.g., bullying) that hinders a child's learning."
