Westminster Academy is a nationally recognized, accredited, college preparatory school with rigorous academics, competitive athletics, and award-winning fine arts. Since its founding by the late Dr. D. James Kennedy in 1971, Westminster Academy has been decidedly mission-driven, firmly committed to Christian scholarship, and keenly focused on kingdom impact for the glory of God. With these combined core convictions as a cornerstone, Westminster Academy serves Christian families in South Florida by educating and equipping their children to be exceptional thinkers, lifelong learners, and influential leaders with a biblical and scholarly perspective for college and beyond.
Our graduates have received extraordinary amounts of college scholarships—most recently, the 76 students of the Class of 2021 collectively received over $5.8 million in scholarship offers. Many go on to attend the top-tier universities in the nation including the United States Military Service Academies, UNC at Chapel Hill, Covenant, Duke, University of Florida, Florida State University, Furman, Georgia Tech, Gordon, Harvard, Holy Cross, MIT, Notre Dame, University of Pennsylvania, Princeton, Stanford, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, Wheaton, and Yale.
Students in PK2 through 12th grade are prayerfully immersed in a caring, Christ-centered setting in such a way that Westminster Academy becomes more than a school—it becomes a community. It is within this community that lessons are learned, life is lived, friendships are forged, and worldviews are formed. This all comes together to create a unique experience not found anywhere else—the Westminster Academy experience.
