High School Principal: Mr. Doug Haas
There are four main parts to the WCS mission statement that must be very evident in our high school if we are to consider ourselves successful: a challenging academic program, knowledge and teaching that is Christ-centered based on a Christian world-view, modeling and encouragement through example and accountability, and application of truth into our everyday lives so that it is evident to all around us. God has created us with incredible minds and has challenged us to use them for His glory. "For the Lord gives wisdom, and from His mouth come knowledge and understanding." (taken from Proverbs 2:6) Learning with wisdom, Godly thinking, is what prepares us for Godly living. Our teachers and fellow classmates have the challenge of academic excellence - to think and learn from a Christian perspective; but also are called to model self-discipline, to love the Lord and each other sacrificially, and to apply Biblical truth in their everyday life. "Prepare your minds for action...as obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do." (taken from I Peter 1:13-15) Too often we, as a culture, take credit for our strengths and the good things in life and then blame God or others for our weaknesses and bad circumstances. As we seek to carry out our mission, we must be let the light of Christ shine in our hearts, minds, and words and actions; being very careful to give God the glory for what takes place in us as individuals and collectively, as a Christian education community. Remember our year verse, "For God, who said, 'Let light shine out of darkness', made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ." (II Corinthians 4:6)
As a high school faculty and student body, we have set the following goals:
- Maintain a culture of discipline so that all involved in the educational process: students, teachers, parents, and administrators are all accountable to consistently fulfill their responsibilities.
- Be young men and women of integrity; having the highest goal of living for the Lord.
- Serve the Middle School and Elementary School by example with our attitudes, speech, and conduct.
- Have an attitude of thankfulness and praise for our new high school building, and will intentionally be good stewards of God's school in which we reside.
