We offer a learning foundation that empowers our students to BELIEVE in the love for Jesus Christ, to ACHIEVE as independent critical thinkers, and to LEAD in service to others.


Educating the Whole Child

At WLS all students are welcomed, valued, and receive individualized attention.  We are dedicated to helping students discover and develop their God-given talents and strengths providing rich and meaningful experiences in and out of the classroom setting.  Our teachers use a variety of teaching modalities and differentiate instruction to fully engage students to meet and exceed each student's learning needs.   Our faculty, staff, and parents work closely together to support each child's education, equipping them with the academic, emotional, and spiritual resources necessary to succeed.
