News and Announcements


Join us as we kick off re-enrollment/enrollment for the 2020 - 2021 school year. As a reminder, families will receive a credit for each student they refer and is enrolled for the duration of the 2020 - 2021 school year. Click Here to RSVP.

In an effort to effectively plan for the upcoming 2020 - 2021 school year, we are asking parents to fill in this brief form regarding their intent to return to WCA.  We appreciate your cooperation in completing and submitting this form.  Please respond by January 14, 2020.  

Students whose parents complete the survey by January 14 will be invited to a HOT COCOA CINEMA where they will receive a cup of hot cocoa with toppings (marshmallows, whipped cream, sprinkles, mint) and enjoy a fun children's movie.

Classes with a survey response rate of 100% will also receive cookies with their cocoa!

Final deadline: January 14, 2020

We hope you choose to join us in 2020-2021 and look forward to your feedback.

If you have any questions, please contact the Academy at 301.955.1160.

In the event of inclement weather, school closings or delays will be announced on WTOP-FM (103.5), WUSA 9, NBC 4, FOX 5, ABC 7 and News Channel 8. A Parent Alert voice message will be sent to parents on the morning of a school delay or closing. Parents can also check the Academy website for updates. As a general rule, WCA follows the Prince George’s County Public School System for school closures; however, please check one of the sources above for confirmation of the Academy’s intentions for the day.


Attendance Policy

Attendance is the most important factor in student success!

• Please remember, students in grades K-12 are to arrive by
7:45 AM each day. ECE students should arrive by 8:30 AM.

• Students who arrive to school after 10:00 AM may not be
admitted without a written excuse note/explanation from
their parent/guardian.

• Students who exceed the limit of absences and/or tardies,
whether excused OR unexcused, face the risk of academic
failure which may lead to retention.

• Please help keep our students safe by contacting us if a
student must be absent or late to ensure it is excused.

• Early pick-ups must be done by 2:30 PM.

• Dismissal begins at 2:45 PM for carline.

• ECHO and ECE are open until 6:00 PM.

• Late pick-ups will result in a $4.00 fine per minute after 6:00

Stay tuned for a Family Fellowship Social Event (sponsored by the BPA) in January 2020! This will be a social opportunity to meet new families and have a great time connecting. Additional details are forthcoming.
