Our Superintendent's Welcome

Dr. Dana ClineSince 1974, First Baptist Church has offered a truly Christian education to hundreds of families through the ministry of West Seneca Christian School. The faculty and staff of WSCS are all dedicated Christians who love the Lord and who feel that God has called them to educate children in a Christian environment. Even though our faculty could possibly receive more on a weekly paycheck from a secular setting, they have chosen this ministry and dedicated their lives to helping students succeed in their education and in their walk with Christ.

As a ministry of First Baptist Church, WSCS has been established to help families provide a place to train their children to be disciples of Christ and to serve God. The family was established by God to train the child in all areas of life. God also established the church for the purpose of reaching those who have not been taught the spiritual truths He intended for people to know. The Christian school allows the parents to be confident that their children are being taught what has been instilled at home and through the local church. This can only be accomplished when the home, the church, and the school are focused on the same goal. It must be understood that the primary goal is to train Christian young people to be disciples of Christ and to develop within them a desire to serve Him. Students should be taught to have the mind of Christ (Philippians 2:5).

The primary reason Christian education was started was to assist parents in completing their children’s training in all areas of life. WSCS is not just an academic institution. We understand that children must grow as Christ grew to become what God wants them to be (Luke 2:52). The Bible must be the basis for our educational program. At WSCS, the Bible is taught so that the student will develop biblical values that will direct every step of his or her life.

We look forward to working with you and your family as you seek to lay a foundation in our students’ lives that will last a lifetime.

 

Yours for Christian Education,

Dr. Dana Cline

See What Our Families Say!
Parent of Current Student
As a family whose children have attended West Seneca Christian for the past 17 years, we place a great deal of confidence in the work of the school. Our children, who have already graduated, have been well prepared for college academically. They have also enjoyed and benefited from their opportunities to participate in sports, drama, and student body leadership roles.

Local Pastor and Parent of Current Student
Our experience with WSCS has been reassuring to us as parents. We were impressed that there is a school and teachers who care deeply about educating children as well as supporting them being raised with biblical values. As a father with a son in the school, as well as being a pastor serving in western New York, I see the need for a godly atmosphere in which children can be educated and raised with biblical values. I am thankful for all those who serve this school that have a heart to see our children succeed academically and spiritually.

During my first year at college, it was quite noticeable to me that spending my high school life at WSCS thoroughly prepared me for college. I leaned at WSCS how important communicating with your teachers is for doing well in a class. WSCS challenging academics was similar to my college classes. I felt that the writing classes I took at WSCS prepared me extremely well for college writing expectations.

Parent of Current Student
We are greatly pleased with the elementary program at WSCS. One of the things we were looking for in a school was one that taught the phonics approach to reading. Both of our children benefited from this system at WSCS and are now avid readers. They have a firm foundation for continued academic success. And more importantly, all teaching is done from a Biblical perspective and is always God honoring.

We appreciate the school’s emphasis on developing Godly character in our children. Values such as kindness, compassion, integrity and respect are demonstrated by the teachers and encouraged in the students daily. The environment is positive and fun with clear boundaries in regards to the proper behavior that is expected in the classroom. And this has led to our children developing good self-control at an early age. WSCS is quite a blessing!

The small class size is an advantage to help the kids learn at their own pace. It allows the teacher time to work with each student one-on-one based on their individual needs. My kids enjoyed going every day and I would highly recommend sending your child to WSCS kindergarten.

WSCS was able to balance the responsibility of preparing its students to serve the Lord while also producing excellence in the classroom. I participated in fine arts as well as athletics which allowed me to develop friendships that still exist today.

WSCS Alumnus
The extracurricular activities allowed me to develop as an individual as well as learn to work in team settings. Both of these characteristics have been essential as I continued my education and worked my way through corporate America. I am continually appreciative of what I learned and I thank God for the opportunity I was given to attend West Seneca Christian.
