Over 50 years ago, Westminster Academy was an idea born around a dining room table, drawn on a paper napkin by Dr. D. James Kennedy, and supported by several families at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church. God has indeed been faithful in transforming this vision into an established academic institution that exists for His glory.
During the 2021–22 school year, we are excited to celebrate five decades of God’s faithfulness to Westminster Academy. Our 50th Anniversary Celebration Weekend is October 8–10. We hope you will make plans to join us for this momentous occasion as we honor the past, celebrate the present, and envision the future.
Since 1971, Westminster Academy has served South Florida’s families and students as a Christian school with a focus on academic rigor and faith formation. The legacy of our school is a result of many faithful people, and we look forward to gathering with alumni, alumni parents, grandparents, retired and current faculty and staff, current families, and friends of WA.
As we countdown to this momentous occasion, will you please join us in prayer? We have created a “50 Days to Pray for WA” prayer guide to cover our students, parents, faculty, staff, the events, and our extended community of alumni families in prayer. Our school was founded as a result of faithful people who prayed, and we invite you to join us in continuing that legacy.
