I was there from kindergarten all the way to Senior year, and let me tell you, this school is a joke. They do not prepare you whatsoever for the real world, and my first year of college has been very challenging because of that. They shelter kids way too much here. They don't prepare you educationally

The teachers do not care at all, and sometimes are bigger bullies than the kids are. Everything was fine until I hit middle school. That's when I realized what this school was really about. If you have a lot of money and fit the mold of the typical preppy rich kid, you'll do fine. But if you're just an average kid like I was, prepare for the worst, or better yet, just get out of there. This school is not worth your money, trust me, I was there. Read less

Wake Christian Academy has done a great job improving every aspect of the school in recent years. As a graduate of WCA and the parent of two graduates I have seen the school transform in the last few years.

Students of WCA have the opportunity to play on competitive sports teams, play in the marching band, the orchestra or handbells. They also have an outstanding art department.

Our child transferred out of a local public high school setting. The administration, teachers and students all made us feel welcome and very much a part of the WCA family even though we were moving in at a much older age. A smaller academic setting was the biggest benefit as well as having rules that
