School Overview

White Rock Christian Academy (WRCA) has a rich legacy on the Semiahmoo peninsula, shaping students into well-rounded, passionate, creative and faithful citizens since we were established in 1981. What initially began as a modest church-based institution has flourished over the years into a Ministry of Education-certified academy, attracting a rapidly expanding enrollment of students ranging from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12. In 2018, WRCA attained full authorization as an IB World School, offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP).

Why teach at White Rock Christian Academy?

We are the only Christian IB continuum school in North America. Our school currently encompasses a student body of over 640, supported by a dedicated team of approximately 70 certified teachers and staff members. Our three-building campus includes two state-of-the-art structures completed in 2022.

Operating as a category one independent school overseen by the White Rock Christian Academy Board of Directors, we take pride in the fact that our student body represents over 30 diverse churches, encompassing a wide spectrum of denominational backgrounds.
