  • Results Speaks for ThemselvesParent 03/08/2015
    Westminster produces outstanding, mature, confident, well-rounded, educated, and impressive graduates who know how to think, how to reason, how to ask questions, and how to defend their views. They can hold their own in any conversation/situation. They leave Westminster with a firm grasp on the truth... More
  • Best school in Memphis!Parent 03/03/2015
    Having moved a good bit, we have experienced several schools both public and private. Westminster has been by far the best. I'm so thankful to have my girls here. We have three daughters with very different personalities and interests. All three have fit in beautifully at this school. Because of the... More

  • Excellence in Christian EducationParent 02/12/2015
    We love this school. Our kids are so happy here and continue to exceed our expectations in intellectual and spiritual growth.

  • Purposeful Pursuit of Academic ExcellenceParent 02/11/2015
    Westminster has been a wonderful fit for our three elementary age children. Faculty and staff have done a great job infusing a strong academic curriculum with an eternal perspective. We have attended other faith-based schools, but none have been this intellectually robust and spiritually engaging. ... More

    Our family has been a part of the Westminster community going on nine years, and during that time we have come to appreciate the unique qualities of WA compared to any other type of school in the area.

  • Well Prepared for College and Life!Parent 02/09/2015
    I have a Westminster graduate as well as a current 10th grader. My daughter is in her third year of college (nursing school) and has never had a moment of hesitation. She was so well prepared, academically and spiritually, for college. My 10th grader is surrounded by people who actually care about... More
  • Prepared for lifeParent 02/09/2015
    There are so many positive things I could say about this institution. Trying to put myself in the readers shoes, I'll offer up what I think is most beneficial as you consider Westminster. One, your child, following this education, will know how to think, period. And layered on top of that are the ... More
  • This is the education I wish I had receivedParent 02/09/2015
    Our family loves Westminster! The Christ-centered curriculum emphasizes classical methodology - Socratic teaching requiring students to understand concepts and grasp information by exercising their own reasoning skills. Classes in Logic, Rhetoric and Latin teach the skills of sound reasoning, disciplined... More
  • Prepared for College and the WorldParent 02/09/2015
    My two oldest daughters graduated from Westminster and they were prepared for college and the world. The two took very different paths. One is now about to graduate for medical school and the other is a recruiter for Memphis College of Art. I graduated there in 2013. The incredible opportunities ... More
  • Rigor mattersParent 02/07/2015
    My grade school son went from well above avg at a "good" public school, to just average here. All classes/subjects are considered honors and students are expected to take personal responsibility for their own school work. With that said, my son loves going to school every day. Three things that I especially... More

  • Teachers Are AMAZING!Parent 02/07/2015
    Rigorous academics but teachers and staff that committed to helping each student maximize their education.
  • Future discerning leaders Parent 02/06/2015
    I love that our children at Westminster over the past 8 years have experienced why we believe in a Christian worldview and have learned the historical origins of the great ideas of Western civilization. We know this is equipping them with the tools to evaluate and to discern what is best in their future... More
  • Exceeded Our ExpectationsParent 02/06/2015
    Our family stumbled onto Westminster, by chance, when our children were entering 7th and 9th grade. Had I known about this school earlier we would have happily paid every penny in tuition for 12 years. Highly trained and caring teachers went above and beyond to give my children an incredible education... More
  • Reaching Their BestParent 02/06/2015
    We have been thrilled with our decision to enroll our children at Westminster. This school is committed to teaching children how to become all that God intended them to be.

  • Teaching kids to think and communicateParent 02/06/2015
    Most schools teach content with no context. Westminster teaches that all truth has a transcendent source which inspires thoughtful, clear expression. Our kids (10th grade to 5th grade) have greatly benefited.
  • Love of LearningParent 02/06/2015
    Westminster Academy through the wonderful faculty gave my four children who all graduated from there a love of learning that they wouldn't have received elsewhere. The logic and rhetoric classes along with the socratic method helped them learn how to think and speak clearly. My wife and I could not... More
  • Learn how to learnParent 02/06/2015
    We did not want our children to just know stuff. We wanted them to know how to learn which will benefit them throughout their lives.
  • Wonderful school and communityParent 02/06/2015
    We have been so pleased with our decision to send our three children to Westminster. The classical education model is amazing and how we as parents wish we had been educated. This, combined with a Christian approach to all subjects (not just a separate Bible class), has made for an education that challenges... More
  • Cultivating Wisdom & VirtueParent 02/06/2015
    WA acknowledges that true education is about much more than college acceptances and a good job. These things are important, but true education is primarily about the cultivation of wisdom and virtue in the soul. Your child will be loved, respected, and challenged at WA. And they will be prepared for ... More
