The core of a WCDS education is rooted in the classical tradition and the cutting edge, focusing on the 21st century educational values of writing, public speaking, critical thinking, STEM, foreign language fluency, and our Life Skills program. Students take advantage of varied academic opportunities to become well-rounded individuals, enabling them to thrive in their future academic and professional endeavors. WCDS embraces the joy of learning through an inspiring liberal arts curriculum, fewer standardized tests, community engagement and leadership opportunities, and enriching travel experiences.
