WCS aims to educate students to use their knowledge, talents, unique calling and faith to impact the world for Jesus Christ. Founded on a biblical world view that acknowledges God as creator, the school offers an academic environment “that has earned a reputation for distinction and achievement in scholastics, athletics, the arts, and community service,” according to the school’s Web site.
School-wide awards include state championships in Delaware Mock Trial, softball, and field hockey.
Student honors include numerous athletic all-conference and Delaware all-state teams; participation in all-state band, jazz band, orchestra, and chorus; awards in Scholastic Art and Delaware Foundation for the Excellence in Drawing contests; as well as awards in the Martin Luther King Jr. Essay Contest, “Poetry Out Loud,” and the First State High School Communications contest for journalism.
Graduates attend top universities like Carnegie Mellon, Columbia, Cornell, Duke, Howard, Johns Hopkins, Rice, Princeton and the University of Pennsylvania, as well as Christian colleges like Messiah, Calvin, Cedarville and Wheaton.
