Our family is tremendously pleased with our decision to be part of the WCA family...The WCA focus on academics, cooperation and values aligns with our commitment to be productive and engaged members of our community. The entire faculty team bring dedication, credentials, and an embracing approach to the challenge of educating our children. We offer our unconditional support and gratitude to the fine people and program at WCA."
This school is everything a school should be. The teachers, the students, the director are all top notch. You would be blessed to call this school your child's home. My boys are learning so much and being enriched. They started two weeks ago and are already reading music and playing the piano. Thank you, WCA.

Wellington Collegiate Academy is a small but growing middle school with a big mind and a big heart. Its rigorous academic program blends with moral education, stimulating conscious growth and self-command in the child, and producing a true feeling of friendship, respect, and community among teachers and students that is unequaled in any school where I have taught. The students shed tears when they graduate and have to leave the environment of love and respect to which they have become accustomed. I doubt that you will find a healthier academic, moral, and social environment for your child.

We are very happy to have chosen WCA as the USA school for our daughter this year, not only because of the teachers' academic prestige, but also because of the way you apply study methodology and the relationships between students and between students and teachers. Thanks a lot for your dedication.
Here is something that parents of prospective WCA students might consider. There are some 40 public middle schools in Palm Beach County, and about an equal number of charter schools and private middle schools. Yet, of the total 24 prizes awarded in the 2015 and 2016 Palm Beach County Middle School Poetry Competition, 9 prizes were won by Wellington Collegiate Academy students. This speaks volumes for WCA’s program in reading and writing, two areas that set a foundation for student success.

My daughter finally has confidence in math! She understands what she is doing and knows she can get the right answer. She has also come to know herself better because of the calm, trusting environment at WCA.

WCA has done an outstanding job customizing lesson plans to meet the needs of every student...It's preparing my daughter for the future challenges that await her...We are extremely pleased and our daughter is very happy, too!"

I'm an 8th grader with a lot of friends I met this year, all unique and special. 6th grade was tough, switching schools, being bullied, losing friends, being all alone. But when I joined this school, I knew everything would change. We were all strangers but now we can't be separated. We love each other and I love this school."
"We are so excited that we were informed about this great school. We met the teachers and the founder. They are amazing and very experienced in their fields of study. WCA has a great curriculum and I just can't wait to see how the students excel in their studies."
"The students enrolling at WCA are very respectful and eager to learn. It's a joy to work with them."
"Wellington Collegiate Academy is an incredible school where the students get along so well and treat each other with kindness and respect. They are all good friends and that creates a wonderful atmosphere for them to come to learn. The teachers are amazing with the students and challenge them as well as helping them individually if a student needs it. My daughter has loved attending WCA and looks forward to going to school each day. The music and art classes are advanced but fun as well as the quality of the academics. As a private middle school it is a very positive, uplifting environment for students but at an affordable rate."
"I like WCA because I am able to learn a lot in a caring environment. The teachers and students are very kind and I'm glad that we have recess outside everyday. -WCA Student
WCA is everything we have looked for in a school.
"This school is amazing. In some other schools there is no peace and quiet to do work in classes. It was hard for me when kids were talking too much. I'm so happy I came here. I love this school. The teachers are nice and I finally got to learn piano here. The whole school is like a family to me. My mom comes to school to volunteer and it's awesome. I made so many good friends here. I rate this school a million."

"My nephews go here and they love it and are really thriving. The kids actually drive their own learning rather than just passively receiving. It's also a fun, great group of kids, and affordable for private school. Highly recommend!"

"I was never excited to go to the next day of school in any other school than WCA. Ever. You can actually learn while socializing and having fun."
