The history of WCA began in the spring of 1963, when the duty of God’s people to “tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, His power and the wonders He has done” (Psalm 78:4) captured the hearts of a small congregation in Huntsville, Alabama. Short on resources but convinced of God’s faithfulness, the 50+ members of the Bible Presbyterian Church stepped out in faith and launched Westminster Christian Academy. The church later changed its name to Westminster Presbyterian Church, and WCA remains a ministry of the church with oversight by the church’s elders.
Westminster Christian Academy offers Christian parents academic excellence in the context of God’s eternal truth. Accredited by AdvancED and a member of Christian School Alliance, Westminster remains committed to its mission of preparing students to impact their world for the kingdom of Christ.
A self-governing board oversees Westminster Christian Academy. The board hires the Head of School, who is responsible for the full operation of the Academy. We currently operate in two divisions on two campuses. The Madison and Monrovia Campus is a K4-5th grade school with one principal overseeing operations. The Brockway Campus houses grades 6-12 and is governed by one high school principal with an assistant.
