Woodcrest Christian Day School is a ministry of the Woodcrest Christian School System and offers classes for transitional kindergarten through 6th grade. We also offer a college-preparatory program for grades 7 through 12 at our secondary campus, Woodcrest Christian School. The total enrollment is over 900 students for our entire TK-12 program.
Our teachers are carefully selected Christians who are qualified college graduates and certified to teach by the Association of Christian Schools (ACSI) and/or by the State of California or another state. They are trained academically and spiritually to minister to students in their assigned grade levels. Our teachers are prepared to instruct students in wisdom and discipline them in love. Our school system is accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
Our teachers follow a sequentially developed curriculum of Christ-centered academics. We use a variety of different curriculum based on our goals and objectives for each subject such as ABeka Books, Bob Jones, Saxon, Harcourt & Brace, and other textbook suppliers. The goal of our instruction is to help the students to grow in the wisdom of God. Learn more about our curriculum.

Library facilities, computer instruction, choral classes, art, p.e., drama, band, and field trips are offered to all grade levels. Private piano and guitar lessons are available on a sign-up basis. Other optional campus programs include a hot lunch program, summer day camp, individual tutoring, intramural sports, shuttle bus service between campuses, and extended day care.
We call the students to obedience by loving God and loving people. We believe that students need to be loved freely and guided firmly toward wholesome growth. When students learn to love and obey God they are better able to love and respect people. The goal of our discipline is to help students grow in the character of Jesus Christ while shepherding their hearts. We emphasize the development of attentiveness, obedience, responsibility, and kindness.
