Raphaella Mumo | Class of 2023 “Wesleyan Christian Academy has nurtured me in ways beyond academic learning. The teachers, staff, and fellow students have become pillars of support, guiding me through challenges and triumphs. Their unwavering belief in my potential has provided me with the confidence to navigate the world after high school and for the rest of my life. I am forever grateful to be a part of this family who loved me from my first day of enrollment.” High School Distinctives A Christ-centered, student-focused learning environment InDIVIDUALIZED ACADEMICS We offer a highly competitive college preparatory curriculum that includes honors courses, Advanced Placement (AP) courses, and online dual enrollment offerings.

Work Hard – Pray Persistently – Embrace Joy Setting them up for success today and tomorrow Civil & Academic Discourse Wesleyan provides students with an intentionally Christian environment to grow their faith and develop a strong biblical foundation. We also understand the importance of engaging with different worldviews and perspectives. Through our thought-provoking worldview courses, students actively participate in discussions and explore diverse perspectives, fostering critical thinking and respectful dialogue. We believe this exposure enhances their understanding of the world and equips them to engage thoughtfully as they navigate their faith in today’s diverse society. Service, Missions & Leadership Our students understand the value of serving others and actively engage in leadership roles within our school community. Through student organizations and community service opportunities, they take on responsibilities that foster personal growth, empathy, and a heart for making a difference. Our high school leadership team, comprised of elected students, plays a vital role in welcoming new students to our campus, creating a supportive and inclusive environment for all. Together, we empower our students to lead with humility, compassion, and a commitment to serving others. Mentorship One of the most defining characteristics of Wesleyan is our incredibly supportive faculty and staff. Not only are our teachers qualified and dedicated to their subject matter, they also look out for their students. They model Christian values for your student, reinforcing those same values you’re teaching and modeling at home. They go above and beyond to be sure students are on track academically, socially, and emotionally. Campus Safety A Safe Place to Learn and Grow You can take comfort in knowing that safety is a top priority on our K-12 campus, located in the heart of North Carolina’s Piedmont Triad area. Although all of our students are located on the same campus and under one roof, each school program has a dedicated area on our campus for its students. Safety measures include two full-time police officers, indoor/outdoor camera surveillance, secure entry points, and a parent/visitor check-in and screening process. We also participate in critical incident drills, weather emergency drills, and we are proud of our dedicated and trained, first responder team.
