Yes. Woodlands Christian is accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and AdvancED. The accreditation process is a detailed process requiring a tremendous amount of time and effort; it assures you that the school meets and exceeds national standards.
TWCA is also accredited by ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability).
ECFA accreditation is based on the ECFA Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™, including financial accountability, transparency, sound board governance and ethical fundraising.
Campus security is taken seriously. At the beginning of the school day, entrance to campus is limited to the main entrance in the Timothy Administration Building. Upon arrival, all visitors are required to present a valid driver's license to the receptionist. In partnership with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, Deputies routinely visit campus throughout the school day. Security cameras are also located throughout campus.
Tuition is an investment in your child's future. At Woodlands Christian, we attempt to be as transparent as possible regarding tuition, fees and other expenses, alleviating any hidden or unexpected costs.
When researching options for education you will want to consider not just the cost of tuition, but the total cost to attend the school.
Other expenses might include:
- lab and technology fees
- travel/field trip expenses
- athletic fees
- uniform requirements
- books and school supplies
- fundraising participation
- before and after school program fees
