Wood County Christian School is a traditional preschool through twelfth grade school that is fully accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), the American Association of Christian Schools (AACS), and AdvancED. The school’s accreditation is recognized by the West Virginia Department of Education. WCCS operates as an Exemption K school in compliance with West Virginia regulations for health, safety, and attendance. The current enrollment is 281.
In September of 1994 two pastors shared a vision for a traditional, community-based Christian school in the mid-Ohio valley, which would be board-run and not affiliated with any one church. With the support of several area churches and families, property was obtained in the summer of 1995, and the decision was made to open Wood County Christian School in the fall of that year with a complete program from grades K-4 thru 12.
With God’s continued hand of blessing, the school has increased from the original 175 students and has expanded to include additional property and facilities. In 2002, a second building was erected, housing a gymnasium and high school classrooms. The addition of a cafeteria and balcony area in 2008 completed this building.
WCCS continues to move into the future, praying for God’s direction and continued blessing as we strive to engage, equip, and impact lives for Christ.
