Our Mission and Purpose
Our Mission is to partner with families who desire high moral standards by educating their children in a Christ-centered environment that fosters enthusiastic scholars, passionate disciples, and responsible citizens.
Our Vision - Whittier Christian Schools will be an innovative, Christ-centered educational community with a global reach and international reputation for serving and supporting families. We prepare students with a Biblical sense of moral decisiveness demonstrated by a love of learning and passionate service.
Our Core Values
Excelling in all that we do: We establish a high standard of performance and conduct for all staff and students. In this way, all members of the WCS community live up to their God-given potential and offer themselves in service to others. Excellence is the continuing process of becoming more than we are today.
Nurturing the Whole Child: We recognize the importance of developing our students’ wide range of talents and interests. We emphasize a diverse educational curriculum that includes the arts, athletics and other co-curricular activities
Collaboration and Partnership: We will achieve maximum success by collaborating to improve the WCS educational experience. We will partner with parents for continual growth and development of their children.
Faithfulness to the Bible: We follow the Way and example of Jesus by demonstrating love, respect, and compassion for others and a courage to live up to his challenge as revealed in the Truth of Scripture.
Attention to Families’ Needs: We value strong relationships with every WCS family and make every effort to respond to their unique circumstances and needs. Strong relationships ensure that they remain active, engaged, and satisfied members of the WCS community
Innovation and Creativity: We believe that the status quo leads to boredom, mediocrity, and irrelevance. If we are to engage our student learners as enthused scholars, we must continually improve and revise our approach to teaching and learning.
Maintaining a Biblical World View: We seek to develop students’ hearts and minds in service to God’s kingdom.
