No. Although WCS is a ministry of Grace Brethren Church and we are located on the GBC campus, students from many churches attend our school each year. In fact, over 40 churches were represented in our student body in 2008-09. We are a non-denominational school.
Yes - our school is chartered by the State of Ohio, and our teachers are all certified. We also place a great deal of emphasis on continuing education for our teachers.
We use a combination of Christian and secular textbooks. Extensive research has gone into the process of selecting curriculum that meets our specific criteria in the various subjects. In science, for example, we knew we needed an inquiry-based program that utilized the scientific method and taught creationism, among many other criteria, so we selected curriculum from a Christian publisher. In mathematics, we needed a highly challenging program that met all the NCTM standards, and our best choice came from a secular publisher. More information on each subject's curriculum can be found in the Academics portion of our website.
While neat and modest attire is required of our students, Wooster Christian School does not have a uniform.
As part of our core curriculum for all students K-8, WCS offers a comprehensive technology program, an art education that instructs in the areas of technique, theory, criticism, and history, and an exclusive Cognitive Enhancing Music Education in which students can learn to read music and play the piano in elementary school and can participate in band and choir in middle school. Physical Education in our spacious gymnasium lets students move and play while helping them understand the importance of caring for their bodies. Students interested in worshiping through guitar, bass, or drums can participate in our middle school chapel band. Interscholastic athletics are offered, including soccer, basketball, and volleyball. Some of our various after-school activities include math club, art club, and drama. Participation in numerous ACSI competitions, like the Math Olympics, spelling bee, and Music Festival, are also available.
Yes. Parents can choose to utilize our Kids' Time program, which offers a fun and safe environment for their children before and after school hours. Information on fees and available times can be found on our Kids' Time page.
Wooster Christian School does offer a limited amount of need-based financial aid to our families. Application can be made by contacting the school or through the FACTS website. See our Tuition and Financial Aid page for more information.
We also introduced a Loyalty Program through which students may qualify to receive free or discounted tuition in eighth grade based on the number of consecutive years previously enrolled.
Families can also participate in a program called T.R.I.P., which allows them to accumulate tuition credit through qualifying gift card purchases.
