An investment in the future.
Let’s cut to the chase. A Christian education is an investment, but we believe the return speaks for itself. Think about it – can you really put a price tag on the value of an education that reinforces the biblical truth your child hears at home and church? Isn’t it worth investing now to see your child graduate with a robust Christian worldview, an ability to apply Scripture to all areas of life, a commitment to life-long learning, a desire to be a responsible citizen, and a dedication to the local church?
We think so. But those outcomes don’t happen anywhere – they happen here. This Is WC, Central Ohio’s leader in K–12 Christian education, where we retain outstanding faculty, offer excellent curricular and co-curricular programs, recognize the connection between intellectual pursuit and Christian discipleship, and promote genuine community within our students and families.
Randy Steckel, finance director, knows the importance of helping you navigate such a significant investment. He works tirelessly to ensure that his team is friendly, helpful, and available for questions from prospective WC families. The finance department is eager to walk with you throughout the admissions process and beyond, offering exceptional customer service and putting your mind at ease every step of the way.
Don’t let sticker shock get the best of you. Dig deeper. Ask us questions. Explore what we offer. Consider the return you’d like to see and decide for yourself that a WC education is an investment worth making.
