“And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”  -Luke 2:52

Laying Foundations Today
Cultivating leaders For tomorrow


The Lord has brought Wayside Christian School (WCS) to a remarkable point of opportunity as it anticipates another 50 years of ministry. We are in urgent need of significant expansion to accommodate our growth. Over the past 5 years, WCS has experienced a remarkable 40% increase in enrollment. Our elementary school urgently needs additional space to separate grade levels into their own classrooms. 

With the availability of EdChoice scholarships for families, a major barrier to enrollment at WCS has been removed. This change is expected to result in even greater growth over the next 5 years than what we have experienced in the past five. As God faithfully continues to expand WCS, this expansion project will enable us to serve our current students better and prepare us for future growth. 

Would you please prayerfully consider supporting the future of WCS and the advancement of Christian education by contributing to our building expansion project? Your support will help us continue our mission of nurturing students academically, spiritually, and socially, making a lasting impact in our community and beyond.
