MENUMENU
EDUCATION COMPARISON

At Westminster, we want our students education to prepare them for the future, not just prepare them to pass a test. Our goals differ from most schools today, with an emphasis on the arts, humanities, and Scripture. We want our students to understand that all truth is God’s truth and it is impossible to learn about anything without the Scriptures at the center of our subjects. This philosophy is reflected in the way we teach our curriculum from JK all the way through graduation.
