    "I am a proud Woodstream Christian Academy Upper School Parent! I have seen my child mature in many different ways. The transition from the Grammar School to the Upper School was a challenge, but I realized that it required my child to become more independent. The life lessons my child has learned at Woodstream Christian Academy is irreplaceable. I am very pleased with the quality of teaching and have quietly observed the success of the graduating seniors. The amount of college scholarship dollars they have received over the past 6 years is unbelievable! No school is a perfect fit for every child; however, Woodstream Christian Academy works well for my family. I highly recommend WCA to other Christian families!"

    "WCA falls short compared to other private schools. Facilities aside, the quality of the education is not adequate. I believe there are some bright spots in regards to teachers (i.e Tutor Brown, Tutor Sampson and Tutor Davidson).. However, they are stretch really thin by having them teach several grades and other duties. There's no accountability !! Teachers are not observed and rated for effectiveness. As a parent, I have to demand homework every night, vocabulary words and writing assignments. The aforementioned are all items that a student will need going into high school and college. Also, with the emphasis on State Common Core standards, WCA is not ensuring that they teachers are accurately utilizing these standards. No consistency except for raising money.. Overall, I'm not pleased and would only suggest the lower school. My child will not be returning no matter the amount of scholarship money.. Please remember that you have to maintain a B in average in college to keep those scholarships.. Getting them and not able to keep them is not worth keeping your child at WCA just because of scholarship money.. I rate my overall experience over the last 5 years as a 2."

    "Woodstream Christian Academy is an excellent school! I am a grandparent of four WCA students. Every time I enter the building I am treated with respect. The students are joyful and the atmosphere is positive. My grandchildren are doing exceptionally well academically and they also play on various athletic teams. I pray for Woodstream Christian Academy daily. God is doing great things there!"

    "I am a proud Alumni of Woodstream Christian Academy. The experiences I had academically, socially, and spiritually were nurtured by a fantastic staff. I attended WCA from 5th -12th grade and grew to love the small class room environment and the ability to be involved in numerous sports, fine art performances, and volunteer opportunities. It was at Woodstream I discovered my love for teaching students through tutoring and because of that opportunity I decided to pursue a degree in Early Childhood Education. Because of Woodstream, I felt prepared for the academic rigor of my college classes, especially in my English and Theology courses. Most Importantly, Woodstream is a school that places God first. Students are challenged to live like Christ through their actions and words, but they are still free to make their own decisions. This allows students to want to seek out a deeper relationship with God out of desire and not out of obligation. Overall, I am thankful for my time at the academy."

    "As an alumni from the inaugural graduating class of WCA, I can say that there is no other place like it. I have attended three different private schools in the short span of my high school career and the two I spent at WCA had a significant impact on both my spiritual and academic success. Having a close-knit community of tutors (teachers), staff and peers, made my high school experience meaningful. Delivering a thesis in 10th grade and being a apart of the only Christian (winning) debate team in the DC Urban Debate League are just a few of the many gems that WCA has to offer. I credit my stability in my belief of God to my 12th grade Apologetics class that thoroughly explored the Christian worldview in comparison/ contrast to those of other religions. Having a Rhetoric class as part of the Classical method of learning, gave me a competitive edge as both a writer and public speaker. Do I think that WCA is everyone ? No, I don't. I think WCA is for parents and students who are willing to take responsibility of their education and spiritual growth and do the work required to be successful. It's a place to restart, to develop and succeed in the safety of a small Christian environment."
