High School Principal: Mr. Doug Haas
There are four main parts to the WCS mission statement that must be very evident in our high school if we are to consider ourselves successful:
- a challenging academic program
- knowledge and teaching that is Christ-centered based on a Christian world-view
- modeling and encouragement through example and accountability
- application of truth into our everyday lives so that it is evident to all around us
God has created us with incredible minds and has challenged us to use them for His glory. “For the Lord gives wisdom, and from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.” (taken from Proverbs 2:6) Learning with wisdom, Godly thinking, is what prepares us for Godly living. Our teachers and fellow classmates have the challenge of academic excellence – to think and learn from a Christian perspective; but also are called to model self-discipline, to love the Lord and each other sacrificially, and to apply Biblical truth in their everyday life. “Prepare your minds for action…as obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do.” (taken from I Peter 1:13-15) Too often we, as a culture, take credit for our strengths and the good things in life and then blame God or others for our weaknesses and bad circumstances. As we seek to carry out our mission, we must be let the light of Christ shine in our hearts, minds, and words and actions; being very careful to give God the glory for what takes place in us as individuals and collectively, as a Christian education community.
