Expected Student Outcomes
Expected Student Outcomes “Portrait of a Graduate”
Our mission at Wesley Christian Academy (WCA) is to provide a Christ centered, loving, nurturing, and safe environment where preschoolers and elementary students have the opportunity to develop cognitively, emotionally, physically, socially, and spiritually.
With our mission as the foundation of everything we do, the following Expected Student Outcomes (ESO) were established to direct all WCA programming.
