Westlake partners with homeschool families to provide opportunities in fine arts, athletics, reading intervention, and individual courses.
Westlake athletic programs offer homeschool students opportunities to engage their physical abilities while enhancing character and spirit. WCA sports offerings include basketball, soccer, and volleyball for boys and girls, in graded teams for grades 5–12. Homeschool students enjoy the same level of excitement and involvement in sports teams as full time students.
Westlake Christian Academy’s band program is recognized for excellent instrumental music performances in area churches and in the community at large. Students from WCA’s band program perform not only for school functions, but also for churches and in musical groups throughout the community. Our goal as a department is to honor God with excellence in the performance of quality instrumental music and to encourage lifelong participation in music. Band is offered for grades 4–12.
Homeschool students taking band must follow the same application process as full time Westlake students.
WCA homeschool registration fee: $60 (unless also taking an academic course)
(Prices listed are annual/monthly)
Nine monthly payments, September through May.
Concert band uniform deposit (refundable) – $30
All bands are full school year commitments, not semester.
Our junior and high school courses help develop students to think for themselves and make wise spiritual, home, and community decisions. Our goal is to give the students spiritual eyes so they can identify possibilities all around them. Most of our high school graduates choose to go to college, which is the focus of our academic program, so WCA gives them a firm academic and spiritual foundation for their journey.
Our High School Course Catalog lists each of our courses along with a description. The catalog can be found here.

Reading Intervention (S.O.A.R.)
Westlake offers effective intervention services for students who need help with phonics, reading fluency, and reading comprehension. We call this program S.O.A.R. (Success On Active Reading). Under the guidance of a trained, certified special education instructor, students are tested for a baseline and tracked using the AimsWeb assessment. Then they are placed in small groups of 1-3 where they receive highly individualized intervention instruction using the Wilson and Read Naturally programs. Students meet for three 45-minute session per week in order to maximize retention and progress. The cost for this service comes to $30 per hour. The intervention program begins the first week of September and concludes in May, with 30 weeks of service.
Homeschool students must follow the same application process as full-time Westlake students.
There is a special application form for students receiving this service.
WCA homeschool registration fee – $60 (unless student is taking a course or band)
