About us: Last year was our first year at Westminster Academy. We are so thankful that we chose WA for our son. We love how intentional the school is about integrating faith in Jesus into every aspect of learning.  After the first week of school, my son came home and told me the poem of being a bucket filler. His wonderful teacher taught him how to fill up his classmates with kind words instead of using words to tear them down. I knew then that we had made the right choice. We would love to talk to you about how much we love this school and answer any questions that you have.
