About us

Our mission is to provide an education for children that is Distinctively Christian and Academically Excellent.

West Bay Christian Academy is an independent Christian school that serves families with children in Preschool through 8th Grade. The Academy, founded in 1981, provides an engaging academic program in a nurturing, Christian environment in order to stimulate students to become thoughtful, active learners. Our small class sizes (12:1) and dedicated faculty enable us to provide individual attention for each student. WBCA is dually accredited by NEASC (New England Association of Schools and Colleges) and ACSI (the Association of Christian Schools International), and receives annual school approval through the Rhode Island Department of Education.

In addition to our rigorous academic program, WBCA is able to provide its students with a challenging balance of curricular options including computer, library, art, Spanish, music, and physical education, as well as a wide range of extra-curricular activities such as competitive sports, drama club, band, robotics, musical concerts, and community service. We are extremely pleased to offer this unique educational opportunity in a safe and caring environment that emphasizes authentic Christian values and a strong partnership with parents.

As you browse our website, I thank you for your time and ask that you consider West Bay Christian Academy as you make this most important decision about your child’s future.
