  • What is Williamsburg Classical Academy?
    Williamsburg Classical Academy is a homeschool cooperative and supportive homeschool community. We offer Preschool to 12th Grade, programs, competitions, honor societies, and events. We are a private, non-profit organization. We have NO employees. All teachers and leadership are volunteers. All of our events, programs, and fundraising are organized by our dedicated volunteers.
  • Is WCA a faith-based community?
    WCA is an inclusive program that welcomes families and students of all religions, personal beliefs, cultures, and backgrounds. Although our school meets in a church, we are not affiliated with any church or location, and are grateful for their caring and open-minded support of our diverse community. There are classes offered with a Christian worldview, text or materials and is noted as such. We are first and foremost a place of academic and social support for ALL homeschool students. Our goal is to educate your child so that they are ready for the next step in life. Whether it is high school, college, or trade school, our goal is to academically prepare your child to meet the challenge.
  • Who are your instructors?
    WCA is an academic cooperative with instructors from the entire Hampton Roads area. However, many instructors are homeschool parents/family of students at WCA. Parents do not take turns teaching classes at WCA. Instead, our instructors apply to teach classes that they are not only excited to teach, but are also qualified to teach. Our instructors are chosen for their expertise, education, knowledge, skills and abilities in a particular subject area. In addition, they love what they do and are able to share that passion with our students. Most WCA instructors have a Bachelor's degree or higher level of education.
  • What can I expect at a WCA admissions in-take conference?
    We take the time to meet every single new family that joins the WCA community. It is a huge under-taking each year, but it is important to us that you feel welcome and acclimate quickly to your new community. The in-take conference is your opportunity to have all of your questions answered about our classes, instructors, and homeschooling at WCA in general. We want to make sure we are a fit for your family!
  • Is WCA a drop-off program or must I stay on-site with my student?
    WCA is an entirely drop-off program for teens aged 13 and up. For younger students, parents may drop off students with back-to-back classes. However, if they have a break between classes, you will need to be onsite and actively supervising them to ensure they reach their next class on-time. Parents are never required to sit-in with students during classes.
  • Am I required to volunteer?
    Each family is requested to volunteer 2 hours per semester in order to ensure our facility is safe and maintained.
  • Can non-WCA families take part in some WCA events and activities?
    Yes! Activities open to the general public are posted on our website and Facebook page. We are a welcoming supportive community for all homeschoolers!
