FINANCIAL INFORMATION 2022 – 2023

WESTGATE CHRISTIAN SCHOOL

LINE ICON
Westgate Christian School is a ministry of Westgate Baptist church, who has underwritten the majority of capital expenditures for the school. One of the goals of Westgate Christian School is to provide a high-quality education at an affordable cost. Our research shows that our tuition remains well below that of other Christian schools in our community.

We fully recognize the financial commitment and sacrifices involved when parents enroll their children in a private school. We are thankful for our WCS families who believe that a Christ-centered education is a worthwhile investment that provides abundant returns, both in this life and in eternity. At the same time, we do ask for faithful and prompt payment of all accounts so that we can meet our institutional obligations to care for our staff, maintain our facilities, and advance the educational program for our students.
