Greetings!

I’m excited that you are here to learn more about who we are. Like you, WRCA is passionate about high-quality, Christian education in a wonderful school community. An education that will not only help our kids get into top universities, but also serve them for the rest of their lives. WRCA exists to ‘Inspire and cultivate citizens of Godly character who transform their world for Christ’ and I am thrilled that you too are seeking this for your child/ren. My children are at WRCA because, as a preschool to grade 12 school, it strongly recognizes the powerful influence that a partnership between a school, a family, and church can have. This partnership helps lay a firm foundation for how well our children are educated, and learn to treat each other, in their formative years.

WRCA believes that our students deserve a well-rounded education to help them get into their first choice of post-secondary options. We have 4 areas we focus on, that we call our Core Programs: Academics, Art, Athletics, and Mission-Service Learning. For our Grade 11 & 12 students we offer different “Pathways to Graduation”  (IB Diploma Programme or the Dogwood certificate). These are graduation pathways students choose, depending on their area of strength, passions, and desired post-secondary options.

Choosing the right school is a big decision and I want to assure you that we are available to answer your questions as they arise. Our team has been where you are, trying to determine the best school for your child’s future. Let’s connect to explore how we can be of service to you and your family. Please consider joining one of our Preview Days or sign up for a personal tour. With that in mind, we look forward to partnering with you to discover how WRCA can be a great fit for your family.

Sincerely,

Sam Rehman
Chief Administrative Officer
