Looking Back: The History of WCA

Williamsburg Christian Academy began in 1978 as a church-sponsored school, thanks to a small group of parents who had a vision for community Christ-centered education. It originally met in the first principal’s dining room. Although the sponsoring church no longer exists, its ambition has led to 35 years of excellence in Christian education.

The school awarded diplomas to its first graduating class in 1987, and then became independent in 1992 with a self-perpetuating board of directors. After growing out of several leased buildings over the years, WCA built its current state-of-the-art, 65,000-square-foot facility in the Stonehouse area of Williamsburg. Students, faculty and staff moved into the 56-acre property in March of 2004 with great celebration.

WCA currently serves families with children from K3 through twelfth grade, from over 50 Christian churches. We are accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) since 2001, as well as the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) since 2008. We expectantly look forward to what God has in store for the future of Williamsburg Christian Academy.
