Lower School

The Westminster Academy Lower School recognizes the specific and unique needs of the lower school student and creates opportunities to challenge and develop the whole student. Our lower school faculty and administration closely partner with parents to promote an environment where students receive a strong academic foundation while discovering their gifts and talents for God’s glory. Students are nurtured in the love of Christ in weekly chapels and other opportunities to develop a robust biblical worldview.

The WA community also shares a deep sense of school spirit—part of the more than 50-year legacy of being a Lion! From Friday night football games under the lights to pep rallies like no other—our youngest fans know how to show Lion spirit!

National Blue Ribbon School

The U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, recognized the Westminster Academy Lower School as a 2014 National Blue Ribbon School in the category of an Exemplary High Performing School based on the lower school’s high academic performance.
