WSCA has been a great experience for our family for the last 6 years! We feel the academics are extremely strong and have prepared our son for college. While the extracurricular activities and electives have not been as diverse as the non-charter high schools in our district, the small close knit environment of like minded students and families is more valuable for our family.

As a middle school student at Western Sierra, I would have to say our MS classes can be overlooked. The high school students have most of the resources which is understandable as this is a collage-prep school. However I enjoy the difficult classes. The teachers here push you to do your best and prepare you for life in High school. I think the administration genuinely care about us too, which adds to the environment of our school. Although our athletics are not that great, we are getting better. WSCA is still growing and I can't wait to see where we go next.
I am a western sierra collegiate academy student and I absolutely love the whole environment and philosophy of the school! I used to go to public school all the way up to 7th grade and I really enjoyed it but here at WSCA you're able to feel free to be yourself and make long term friends. Although it is a small school the academics are overall very good and most of the teachers are great. With more athletic and club opportunities and school culture it would definitely be one of the best schools in the Sacramento area.
