Elementary

As image-bearers of Christ, our students are given the tools and support to grow academically, socially, physically, creatively, spiritually, and personally during these formative early years.

Our caring Christian faculty creates a loving classroom atmosphere where students feel safe and supported. The faculty members are qualified professionals who regularly engage in professional development and who seek to improve their craft through diligent study of new practices and methods of teaching. Our challenging academic programs ensure students are fully prepared for the next phase of education, along with being prepared for a life of service to God and others.

Student Academic Services

At WCS we know that no two children learn, perceive, or behave in the same way. It is our job to understand how God has designed each child, what their strengths are, and in what areas they may need extra support.

A Message from our Elementary School Principal, Sarah Bowler

Welcome to WCS elementary school. Psychologist Jean Piaget once said, “Play is the work of childhood.” That is certainly how we see it! At Whitinsville Christian School, we inspire our children to learn by immersing them in the vibrant sense of joy and curiosity in our community. We will partner closely with you to provide a safe, supportive environment where your child feels free to learn, take risks, grow, and thrive.

Our faculty and staff are united in expressing clear goals for all students and we enthusiastically offer hands-on, differentiated learning. By monitoring your child’s individual progress, we can offer them exactly what they need, when they need it–whether that is a new challenge, a fresh perspective, or additional support. We are also dedicated to furthering your child’s spiritual growth by guiding them to see the image of God in others, demonstrate empathy and compassion, embrace diversity, and show respect for others.

We take full advantage of the beautiful natural surroundings of our campus to engage students in outdoor projects as we guide them to deepen their understanding of the world and themselves. Because we believe so strongly that play is central to children’s learning and development, we integrate it across all aspects of learning. From Outdoor Ed to a dedicated Maker Space, students use everything from God’s creation to 3D printers to explore their creativity, learn to work with others, and solve complex problems.

By the time children leave us, they are well-prepared for middle school and beyond. Most importantly, our students know they are valued as individuals, and that prepares them to do great things in the world.
