“Winston Salem Christian School (WSCS) is excited to announce that it will remain open at its current location for the upcoming school year and will be taking bold steps in the coming weeks and months to launch as an independent Christian School. God has truly answered the diligent prayers of our WSCS community. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to Wake Forest University and Winston Salem First for their willingness to allow us to remain at our current location for the 2019-2020 school year. We are appreciative of Wake Forest’s generosity, support and willingness to help #SaveWSCS by providing a year of transition. Thank you as well to churches, individuals, and corporations from around the country that have donated both financially and through acts of service to support WSCS, and thank you to our faculty who have all signed on for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year! We are excited to move forward with the education and ministry of Winston Salem Christian School, and we look forward to serving families in Christian education into the next 40 years and beyond – #WSCSNext40.

“Winston Salem Christian School has long been an important part of the Winston Salem First community, as our congregation has covered the school with prayer and financial support for nearly 40 years. Earlier this year, our congregation and leadership made the decision to sell our property to Wake Forest and move closer to downtown Winston-Salem so we could reinvest our time, talents and resources into the broader community. We are thrilled to partner with Wake Forest to ensure that Winston Salem Christian School can remain on the existing property for one more year and continue to serve students in the area.”
This is an exciting time, and we will move from a time of fundraising to a time of enrollment. Our current families serve as our best source of advertisement, so please take advantage of the following opportunity and assist us in growing Winston Salem Christian School
- Current families that recommend a new family can email TCabrera@WSChristian.com and we will waive the application fee for any family that is referred by a current WSCS family.
- We will waive $100 from the K-12 registration fee for any new student that is referred by a current family. Your referral allows a family to register at $250 instead of the current rate of $350.
- The referring family will receive a $100 credit after the referred family enrolls for the 2019-2020 school year.
- If you are interested in serving as a host family, please email Jane Wallace at JWallace@WSChristian.com to set up a time to talk about the process.
We are looking forward to growing our school and impacting the local community!
