    White Rock Christian Academy exists to inspire and cultivate Godly characters who transform their world for Christ. This core purpose is more than a desire to see our students graduate and have a diploma; we seek to prepare students for life by engaging their minds, talents, and hearts. We believe all students deserve a quality Christian education through a holistic approach as our four core program pillars serve as the foundation of the educational curriculum. It is best described as a program of education that is comprehensive, holistic and nurtures excellence. Each faith-based program pillar (academics, athletics, arts, and service) focuses on an area dedicated to furthering student growth and development while building a holistic education from a Biblical Christian worldview.
    White Rock Christian Academy (WRCA) has a long and rich history on The Semiahmoo Peninsula. Since 1981 WRCA has been molding young people into well-rounded, passionate, creative, Godly citizens. What began as a small, church-based establishment in 1981 has developed over the years into a Ministry of Education certified institute with a quickly growing enrollment of students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12.
    The school was created to fulfill the vision of Pastor Verne Wilson and the elders of White Rock Christian Fellowship for quality Christian education. The students studied using the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) as its core curriculum, which allowed them to complete work at their own pace. In September of 1990, the curriculum was changed from ACE to a B.C. approved curriculum taught from a distinctly Christian perspective. WRCA, with the support of the founding church, remained committed to providing a Christian curriculum to their student body of 184 students.
    The school transitioned and grew over the years and changed from a predominately Church family demographic to a broader community-based Christian school.
    Academically students were challenged with good solid teaching and were given opportunities to enter various contests to hone their skills. Grade 11 and 12 students were given leadership roles in Chapel and through Students Council. As WRCA continued to grow, so too did the programs offered. Music became a required subject K-12 to give students a foundation for worship and a lifelong love of music. WRCA's top placing is in concert choir, concert band, and jazz band ensembles in the early years. The first WRCA musical was AntsHillvania, and it involved performers from K-12. Over the years, the caliber of music and art programs continued to grow. WRCA also began building an admirable athletics department with a strong basketball program for boys and an equally strong volleyball program for girls. Similarly, WRCA students saw success in Cross Country and Track and Field. Our athletes were branded WRCA Warriors.
    The serving was in the heart of WRCA from inception. The school established a relationship with Chukyo High School in Japan and began a partnership that saw students from their school come to Canada for 11 months to learn English abroad. In 1991, that partnership allowed senior students from WRCA to travel to Japan for ten days to be billeted with Chukyo High School families. This partnership continues today as students from Chukyo continue to participate in Canadian culture and English through our well-established program.
