WCA Accreditation

Weddington Christian Academy, a ministry of Weddington United Methodist Church, is proud to announce that they have met the requirements to become an accredited school by the external review committee, AdvancED. For almost two years, administrators, staff, and teachers have been collecting and compiling data and generating reports to achieve the standards of accreditation. On Tuesday, April 5, 2016 the process was completed and Weddington Christian Academy was recommended for accreditation status.


AdvancED, formerly SACS, is a global accreditation organization and is the largest community of education professionals in the world. They are a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of PreK-12 public and private schools and school systems.


WCA was declared a Candidate for Accreditation in June 2014 after an application process that included both narratives and a site visit. Since then, all WCA teachers, assistants, and support staff have participated in countless meetings, gathering of evidence, evaluation of all procedures and processes and data analysis.


The AdvancED Board of Directors meets twice per year and will meet again this June to finalize WCA’s accreditation. Please join us in congratulating WCA on this fantastic accomplishment.
