Wilmington Christian School was established in 1946 to assist Christian families in nurturing their children in Body, Mind, and Spirit. This WCS Statement of Faith briefly outlines the theological basis of our philosophy and practices.
As a prerequisite for admission, WCS requires that at least one parent agrees with the seven articles below, and can express a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In addition, we expect families seeking enrollment at WCS to be regular in worship at a local church that upholds the evangelical tradition expressed in these seven articles. We require a parent to indicate their agreement with position by signing the Affirmation of Belief form.
Wilmington Christian School provides a Christ-centered challenging academic program with instruction based on the Biblical view of God and the world. WCS teaches, influences, and encourages each student to effectively integrate Biblical truth into his/her daily life and to impact the culture for Christ.
