Westminster Academy Reviews
Rating 3.67 out of 5 6 reviews
Be prepared to pay a hefty therapy bill if you send your kid here. Belittlement and bullying from the administration runs rampent. For your child's safety, send them anywhere else.
I love the community at my school. All of the faculty and my peers truly care about forming connections with one another, and their emphasis on learning classically and through a Christian worldview has helped me in more ways than I can count. While some may think it odd to be in the same class as the same people from K-12th grade, I love the familial aspect our school has. You are known and loved, and the faculty are there to support students through anything and everything. I have never had a problem with feeling heard, and our teachers have really become lifelong friends and mentors. I will always be thankful for the experience and education Westminster Academy has given me.
I love my school. I have attended Westminster Academy since Kindergarten, which was a time before Junior Kindergarten was available. The academics prepares the students for college, with additional resources like theology and Rhetoric. The school is unique in the ways it conducts it's classes. The classes are capped at 18 so the school can hold small intimate discussions between classmates and teachers and students. My high school also has a House system. It's made up of four houses named after martyred saints. My school also was chosen to speak to other schools about our successful house system and the way it runs. Our sports program, however, lacks due to the size and lack of diversity in the school. Overall, my school is wonderful with resources available to progress the students mental and physical health, preparing them for adulthood.
Westminster's educational resources are excellent, with rigorous curricula and engaged teachers who are invested in the students and always willing to help. It is a classical school which uses the Trivium in order to teach students in the way that children naturally learn, as described in Dorothy Sayers' article "The Lost Tools of Learning". The sports programs are somewhat lacking, mostly because of its small size, but its academics are exceptional.
Westminster has been an incredible blessing and fit for our family. While the academics are rigorous, the teaching staff is loving, patient, and well-trained to nurture and grow the students both spiritually and scholastically. The community of parents is incredibly supportive, also.
