The founders of Westminster Academy envisioned an institution devoted to Christ and dedicated to excellence; and for more than four decades, our school has aggressively and faithfully pursued that calling as South Florida’s leader in providing a Christ-centered, biblically-based, college preparatory program. Westminster Academy is mission-driven. It is committed to Christian scholarship. It is intentional about aiming for kingdom impact.
The time a student spends in school represents the single largest allocation of time of their pre-adult years—nearly 16,000 hours. They are also the most formative. Westminster Academy stands ready to maximize those hours. It is a place where rigorous scholarship links with spiritual formation. Our programs—academics, athletics, and the arts—and our faculty are focused on engaging students. It is our desire to join with like-minded families to capitalize on the value of the church, school, and home relationship.
Westminster Academy is indeed a special place. Students soar to great heights from our classrooms, athletic and performance venues, and from their relationships with faculty. It is a place where students are challenged and called to be part of a greater story—God’s story.
Thank you for visiting our website. It is my hope and prayer that you will discover that Westminster Academy is a worthy partner in the education of your children.

Dear Lion Fans and Friends,
Welcome to Westminster Academy Athletics and the excitement of Lion Country! It is an honor to be a part of such a uniquely talented group of student-athletes and teams. God has assembled and orchestrated many components through His perfect providence, and these characteristics are manifested in many ways through WA Athletics.
It is with great humility and character that our student-athletes and coaches commit to seeking excellence through educational athletics. The platform we enjoy is not only an extension of the classroom but an expression and testimony of our faith in Christ.
Luke 12:48 states, “To him that much is given; much is required.” Westminster Academy has been abundantly blessed, and the fruit is immeasurable. This only heightens our collective desire to compete and achieve our goals while glorifying our Lord and Savior.
With 21 current sports offered and men’s lacrosse on the horizon, we feel that WA has something for every serious athlete. In fact, 2 out of every 3 WA students compete in at least one sport.
Lion athletes enjoy a high level of excellence, as evidenced by the 23 students in the Class of 2017 who received athletic scholarships. Our student-athletes display an uncanny devotion to competing hard and within the rules of their respective sport. This serves as a distinct testimony of who we are in Christ.
We are grateful for the support shown toward our student-athletes and coaches. Our parents and the greater WA community provide a loyalty that is palpable. Thank you for the way that you care for our school and our teams.
Ultimately, we seek God’s direction in providing a promising landscape for the future of Westminster Academy Athletics. May we be found faithful in our efforts and endeavors as WA Lions!
To God Be The Glory,
