Our Exceptional Class of 2022

Updated: Jun 15

Since many of these students of our 2022 graduate class had been with us since Pre-K, there is still something surreal in saying that these same students have graduated. But indeed, they have, and we couldn’t be the prouder of them.


On graduation day much was said on these students’ behalves. They’re bright, they’re kind; they embody the same wisdom and virtue towards which our Academy aspires.


But when asked of their Academy experience in the years to come, what will these same students say? How will they remember Whitefish Christian Academy?


Here below reveals but a glimpse of their future responses.


Anderson Barrile

When did you begin at WCA?

1st grade

What will you remember most about WCA?

I’ll remember the welcoming and friendly atmosphere created by kind students as well as teachers who, now at the end of the year, feel more like good friends than teachers.

In what ways has WCA prepared you for your next steps?

WCA has prepared me most in that it has enabled me to absorb meaningful information about difficult topics, and then write complex essays about those topics. Writing is a very helpful tool for high school and beyond, so I am grateful that WCA has prepared me in this way for my “next steps” in life.
