Parent Appreciation Day
School leaders to express gratitude for record enrollment
In his September Head of School Message, Dr. Mike Hayes shared that Worthington Christian School exceeds 1,000 students in grades K-12 for the first time in the school’s 51-year history.
“Worthington Christian has grown by 12.5 percent in the past two years,” states Hayes, “with 2023-24 enrollment hitting an all-time high of 1,040 students.”
Hayes quickly points out that the growth has resulted from steadfastness in “our admissions practices and extraordinarily high retention.”
“Retaining 95 percent of our student body is a tribute to the high-caliber college prep education delivered by our teachers and the equally impressive opportunities for students to excel in the arts, athletics, service, and leadership.”
“All of us at WC are committed to helping students know they matter by providing an excellent academic, social, and spiritual experience that equips students to see the world through the lens of scripture—and then to engage it with confidence, compassion, and the mind of Christ.
Thank You, Parents
Such growth is only possible because of the partnership we have with parents who choose to send their children to WC. As a gesture of gratitude, school leaders, teachers, and staff will greet parents with individually wrapped Cheryl’s cookies in the morning carpool line on Friday, September 22. Parents of students in afternoon kindergarten will be treated, as well.
Out of Uniform for Students
We want to celebrate our students and will hold an All-School Out of Uniform (OOU) Day on Friday, September 22. Students are encouraged to dress in Red and Gold to show their school spirit. Make sure to check the Parent/Student Handbook for OOU guidelines.
