Residential Program &
Global Ministry Expansion

Spiritual Life: Seen, Heard, Known, Loved, Valued, and Shaped.

We are spiritually diverse; students are welcomed wherever they are on their spiritual journey.

  • We pursue students through building relationships, solid biblical teaching from God’s Word, corporate worship experiences, and a dedication to discipleship and biblical application.
  • The daily schedule incorporates morning prayer and devotions, small group gatherings, biblical immersion into academic courses offered, and evening life groups.
  • Students are taught to live in a community where love, respect, and forgiveness abound, influenced by 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 and Matthew 18.
  • We firmly believe that each student is created by God on purpose and for a purpose.

Oh, The Places You Will Go!

Williamsburg Christian Academy’s historic location and proximity to Washington DC, Virginia Beach, Richmond, Philadelphia, New York, Raleigh, Charlotte and Atlanta enhance our residential life experiences. 

Saturday out-of-town residential experiences are designed to enrich the lives of all boarding school students and to get away from and unwind for a day. Departure times for Saturday experiences destinations may adjust due to trip location and distance.

Partner with us today as we set out to expand God’s kingdom here on earth where students from every corner of the globe worship Christ, live, and study together with love as defined in 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8.  His guidance, coupled with your partnership, are vital in bringing our strategic vision to fruition. $2 million of our four-year, $11 million capital campaign will be reserved for marketing, staffing, program additions, and travel to recruit domestic and international boarding students.
