Waukesha Christian Academy.
As a result of the blessing of God, the Faith Baptist Church of Waukesha, Wisconsin opened the Waukesha Christian Academy for the first time on Tuesday, September 7, 1976. For almost four years the church prayed definitely that the Lord might enable them to begin a Christian Day School in the Waukesha area. In the spring of 1976, the Faith Baptist Church bought the Westmoreland School Property on Merrill Hills Road between Madison Street and Westmoreland Road, just west of the city limits. Utilizing the four room school and the two acres of land, an elementary school was established, with four grades in each of two rooms, plus half-day kindergarten. After six years, we had outgrown the original building, and in 1982, we added three more classrooms along with other facilities. This more than doubled our usable space. In 1984 we added the ninth grade and in 1985 we added the tenth grade. In 1989 we completed the secondary education, with the addition of the eleventh and twelfth grades. We now have thirteen years of Christian Education for our children. In 1994 we completed our new church building, and moved the four years of high school to the Torhorst School section of the church.
We would encourage you to drive out into the country to see these two beautiful sites, and we invite your questions about the Waukesha Christian Academy.

What makes Waukesha Christian Academy different?
It gives the Bible and Prayer a prominent place throughout the day.
It is Patriotic, showing respect for the United States Heritage, and speaking
favorably of our Republic and the American way of life which fosters freedom and liberty.
It not only presents the various forms of economics, but fosters the American
heritage of free enterprise.
It looks at the creation of humanity from the Biblical viewpoint of Creationism, rather
than from the standpoint of the evolutionary hypothesis.
Its physical education program provides nothing even remotely connected with
dancing in any form, and does not offer exercises as practiced in common yoga courses.
It presents a standard of dress and appearance, which requires modest apparel for
boys as well as girls, and neat manly haircuts for boys. This is clearly described in the code of conduct button to the right.
