The Lykins Family

Adam (12th), Andrew (10th), Benjamin (7th), Ellie Kate (2nd)

Everyone on staff and in the WCCS community as a whole really cares, as evidenced in the many ways students are nurtured and encouraged to grow in their faith while pursuing academic excellence, too.

How long has your family been a part of our school?

Six years.

Why did you choose WCCS for your child?

We chose WCCS when we moved to the area in December 2017 because we wanted to enroll our children in a school that aligned most with the school they had been enrolled in when we lived in the Atlanta area. We hoped this decision would help them adjust best to a new state, especially transitioning mid school year. We felt the mission statement, educational philosophy, and environment at WCCS matched up best with our children’s previous school in Georgia. Since the children began attending in January 2018, WCCS has proven to be an excellent fit for our family.

What do you love most about WCCS?

We love the family feel, the ease of communication with any and all staff as needed, and the individualized assistance each child receives when any learning or behavioral interventions are needed.

What is one word that describes our school? Tell us why you chose that word.

Family. Everyone on staff and in the WCCS community as a whole really cares, as evidenced in the many ways students are nurtured and encouraged to grow in their faith while pursuing academic excellence, too.

Describe one of your favorite teachers and the impact that this person has had in your student’s life – or perhaps a specific example of a way this teacher has cared for your student in a special way.

Olivia Gregory has been influential in all our sons’ lives, but especially our middle son, Andrew. When he was diagnosed with a major medical issue causing a number of absences in his 8th grade year, she was sure to let us know she was praying for him, would often reach out to us to check on him, and helped him catch up on missed assignments, tests, etc. It was so reassuring to us as parents to have Mrs. Gregory (and others) as a valuable resource during a very vulnerable time for our son and our family.

How is WCCS preparing your child for God’s call on their lives, including hopes, plans, and dreams for college, career, and/or community?

WCCS is helping our children identify their strengths and interests so they can make better informed decisions about plans after graduation.

What would you tell another parent to encourage them to consider enrolling their child at WCCS?

WCCS is worth the investment! Our children have thrived as students at WCCS. We are so thankful for the option to have our children educated with a Christian worldview right here in the community we have grown to love over the last six years. It is definitely something to look into for those considering alternatives to traditional public education.
