About WCA

Mission Statement

Will Carleton Academy will serve the community as a charter school where parents can choose a traditional, character-based curriculum and educational atmosphere for their children.  The school will provide an orderly disciplined environment where all children are exposed to the wonder and joy of learning, where all children are expected to learn, and where all children and adults are expected to behave in a respectful and responsible manner.

Philosophy Statement

The philosophy of Will Carleton Academy rests on three basic tenets. First, the primary responsibility of the school is to educate each child in the basic academic skills and a core knowledge of the world around him. Second, academic education cannot be separated from, and must necessarily include attention to, character education. Finally, throughout life, parent’s are the child’s first teachers with the primary right and responsibility to their child’s education.

Through challenging curriculum emphasizing core academics with an exposure to the arts, students will be prepared to enter college, the work force and their communities with personal integrity and responsibility.
