At Wickenburg Christian Academy we view education from a perspective that takes into account the "whole" spectrum of school life, from the preschooler through the high school graduate. It is our prayer that the quality of Christian education and leadership that we promote will propel our students further in their goals with an advanced development.
It has been said that “change is the only constant.” As much as we work to build stability into all that we do, WCA faces changes each year.
Some changes are growing pains, some are welcome, some are difficult. The intent and prayer of the Governing Board and leadership team is that God would be honored through it all. We are convinced that He is blessing the ministry of WCA. In fact, K-12 enrollment in 16-17 is on track to exceed 100 students for the first time ever!
Here are the major staffing changes for the coming year:
Primary: Mrs. Bolin—retiring after 16 years at WCA; Mrs. Douthat retired from WUSD last spring and joined us at WCA for the15-16 school year. She will not be returning, as the untethered freedom of retirement is calling her name! We are pleased to welcome Mrs. Neicia Heath as our new Kindergarten teacher.
Secondary: Mrs. Runyan (Omnibus & Math) focusing on homeschooling her four children (er…young adults); Mrs. Brink (Math & Science) moving
out of state; Mr. Taylor (Physics) only offered every other year.
Preschool: Mrs. Shelton will not be returning to PS in the Fall. She has touched a lot of little lives over her 11 years at WCA, and she will be missed by many!
New additions for activities:
Athletics/Activities—Men’s HS Basketball will be offered for the first time in the Fall, in addition to archery, Women’s volleyball, cross country,
swim team, and golf. 5th–8th will also have archery, volleyball, basketball and a track and field day. A JCL club, Student Council, continuing Mathletes groups are also in the works. (Coaches and adults sponsors needed!)
