Wilmington Christian Academy (WCA) is a coeducational school with four divisions: Preschool, Elementary, Middle and High School. 98% of WCA graduates pursue post-secondary education. WCA graduates have successfully gained acceptance into major public and private colleges throughout the United States. Graduates frequently secure college scholarships for athletic and academic achievement. Alumni have successfully completed advanced degrees in many fields such as ministry, medicine, law, business, education, journalism, law enforcement, technology, engineering and the military. A recent advancement at WCA is a new student/parent portal, allowing everyone to communicate freely between school and home. WCA considers the school to be an extension of the home.
