School Overview

Founded in 1961, Westminster is an independent, college-preparatory, coeducational Christian school serving 1,230 students from preschool through 12th grade. There are 492 students enrolled in grades 9-12, 131 of whom are seniors. Westminster Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin.

Westminster Christian School’s academic program challenges and empowers learners with a rigorous curriculum from a Biblical worldview. It offers a nurturing environment where exceptionally qualified and gifted teachers model Christian living and thinking. Students enjoy an extensive selection of academic electives, athletic offerings and fine arts disciplines that allow them to discover their God given talents, preparing them to excel in college and beyond. Student government and service opportunities, both locally and abroad, allow them to develop as leaders and to positively impact others for the glory of God.

Westminster Christian School offers 24 Advanced Placement courses in the High School curriculum.

Courses Offered:

Students enrolled in AP courses are expected to complete the entire course.
