ACADEMIC PROGRAM

 

WCS provides a challenging, college prepatory academic program that includes technology training, foreign language, and fine arts. Self-discipline and clear, concise expectations are emphasized in an atmosphere of mutual respect. Faculty members provide extra help as needed, and tutoring can be arranged. Bible is part of the daily curriculum and all grades participate in Chapel Services.

Weatherford Christian School implements a meaningful, hands-on, inquiry based science curriculum through the use of Stemscopes.  STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) lessons are used to engage students through the use of hands-on exploration, 21st century technology skills, and meaningful learning experiences that are interesting, engaging and will develop skills needed for future STEM careers as well as meet all science standards.

WCS utilizes the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments three times within each calendar year.  It creates a personalized assessment experience by adapting to each student’s learning level.  WCS receives data through the testing that is essential information about what each student knows and is ready to learn.

The MAP testing provides WCS with data teachers can use to personalize instruction via small group, or whole group activities.  This data will also support efforts for intentional teaching decisions in order to best meet the needs of our students.

Since the first graduating class in 2009, WCS graduates have been offered over $5.6 million in scholarships to top colleges & universities within the state and nation.
