The Portrait of a Graduate guides our decisions and desired outcomes for our high school students at Westminster Academy.
Step into the high school at Westminster Academy, and you will discover it’s a place where students are part of a special community. A community that fosters their development as individuals, community members, scholars, and life-long learners that seek to apply their gifts and talents for God’s glory.
Our students learn from outstanding Christian educators, fifty percent with advanced degrees, who invest in faithfully nurturing our students’ academic, social, and spiritual growth.
We challenge students to prepare well for college through rigorous academics and numerous opportunities to earn college credit before graduating high school through Advanced Placement and Dual-Enrollment classes. Over half of our high school students graduate with twelve or more college credits on their transcripts. Electives are designed to explore interests such as business law, broadcasting, computer science, robotics, creative writing, graphic design, and psychology.
Our guidance office works with each of our students on a personal basis starting in ninth grade to offer guidance on course selection, individual counseling, advising, assistance with the college admissions process, and college scholarship information.
