Training Students for over 40 Years

After prayerful concern and consideration, the members of Woodcrest  Baptist Church under the direction of the pastor,  Dr. Clarke Poorman, began a Christian school in the fall of 1973.

WBA  started with 30 students and used  the Accelerated Christian Education(ACE) curriculum.   In 1976 an educational wing with 13 classrooms was added on to the original church building.  As the enrollment grew to over 100 students the educational approach changed from an individualized study method  to a traditional classroom style.  When that change was made, the ACE curriculum was replaced with the A Beka curriculum.

In 1986 another addition was added to the facility.  The added space is a 10,000 sq. foot building which includes a gymnasium, locker rooms, concession area, offices, classroom and an apartment used for missionaries and guest speakers.

WBA is starting its 41st year of providing a Bible centered education. God has greatly blessed the ministry of Woodcrest Baptist Academy, and we are grateful for the opportunity to serve God through the ministry of Christian Education.
