WCS believes in creating “well rounded” individuals by exposing them to a wide variety of activities, such as music, band, and athletics, as well as developing hearts of giving through various service projects. We also encourage our students to participate in, learn new skills from, and test their potential interest in activities outside of school (such as 4-H, church groups, club sports, orchestra, etc.). While we understand that not every student will go on to participate in all of our activities once they leave WCS, we feel strongly enough about this philosophy to require participation while in attendance at our school.
Practice time for these events is typically during regular school hours, while events/performances often occur outside of school hours. This will sometimes create scheduling conflicts with non-WCS events, particularly Middle School Athletics. Because participation in non-WCS sanctioned athletics is optional, and because our team numbers are sometimes limited, we encourage our families to choose WCS first when such conflicts arise.
The goal of WCS is to educate children in the light of God’s Word and to prepare them for a life of service to God, to His Creation, and to their community.
