BEST PRIVATE SCHOOL
Whittier Christian High School
Established in 1958, Whittier Christian High School is a private, non-profit Christian high school located on a 20-acre site leased from the Lowell Joint School District. In 2004 the school built and opened the Leon Davis Event Center, an 11,325 square foot gymnasium and event center. In the fall of 2007, WCHS completed construction on state of the art biology and math laboratories.
Whittier Christian High School offers a comprehensive high school experience. Fully accredited both by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and the Association of Christian Schools International, WCHS has produced over 5,000 graduates and 98% of our students go on to collegiate level study. We provide a full, college preparatory program with three academic tracks, 18 CIF-sanctioned sports, and an intentional program of spiritual emphasis that includes weekly chapels, required Bible curriculum, and service opportunities.
The school’s academic program also keeps pace with the needs of the 21st century. In 2013 we became a 1-1 iPad school, training staff and students to use technology effectively and responsibly. This access to technology increases student familiarity and confidence to use technology for academic purposes, a vital skill for success both in college and career.
Ultimately, Whittier Christian High School provides a Christ-centered academic community where students are taught, inspired, and prepared to be critical thinkers and authentic Christians, equipping them to honor God through academic achievement, humble service and courageous leadership.
