Get to Know Us


Welcome to Woodcrest Christian Day School

Woodcrest Christian Day School is a private elementary school offering transitional kindergarten through sixth grade. Our teachers and staff seek to establish a Biblical standard of academic achievement and Godly conduct that challenges each student to reach maximum potential. We join efforts with parents who want their children to develop Godly wisdom and Christ-like character.  Our school serves to complement both the ministries of the Christian home and the local church. Our students benefit from a well-rounded education that includes solid academics, art, music, drama, technology, sports, and physical education.  Let us share with you how a Christ-centered focus can make all the difference for your child.

What Others Are Saying

Woodcrest Christian was located 20 miles from where we lived, but we would have driven 100 miles for such a unique place.

Tina vanHaaster, current family

“The school is very academic but the main reason that we have our child attend is because of the focus on the whole child and the whole family.  The basis on bible teachings and the focus on showing love and support to the children is huge to us.  We also appreciate the fact that so many parents are involved in their child’s education.”

WCSS Parent

“The teachers genuinely care about the kids, the education they are receiving is top notch, and the Christian influence is wonderful!”

WCSS Parent

“WCDS is like a family to us, everyone is very welcoming to everyone who attends there.  What they have to teach to the kids about God is outstanding, the things they learn from the excellent teachers stay with the kids throughout their lives and they continue to grow in God’s world as they go to Woodcrest Christian School.”

WCSS Parent

"I've been in the Woodcrest System since kindergarten and one thing I have learned is that one of the things that set Woodcrest apart are the teachers and staff members. They truly care about their students. They not only care about their academics but also care for them on a personal level and want to make sure they are doing well emotionally, spiritually, and mentally, not just academically."
