Why Wilson Hill
Distance learning is as old as the scroll… a way of overcoming both spatial and temporal distance. Unfortunately, it can sometimes be just as dry and dusty. Wilson Hill Academy is leveraging technology to allow master teachers who love God, love their subjects and love their students to overcome those distances in new and fresh ways… bringing you a virtual classroom with windows on the world.
A classical Christian education is first of all Christian. It is a pursuit of all that is good, true and beautiful with the recognition that truth, goodness and beauty are absolutes rooted in the triune God of Scripture. It is also classical in the sense that it seeks to equip students with the tools of learning and a worldview framework within which to pursue life-long learning. And finally it is forward-looking – equipping students to face the challenges of the 3rd millennium armed with wisdom from the previous two.
About Wilson Hill
Wilson Hill Academy exists to provide college-bound students with a classical Christian education founded upon and informed by a biblical worldview; equipping them to know, love, and practice that which is true, good and beautiful, and preparing them to live obedient, fruitful lives in the service of God and man.
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. ~Psalm 1:1-3
Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.
~ 2 Corinthians 10:5
Wilson Hill Academy believes that gifted, enthusiastic teachers who can bring their subjects alive are the key to successfully delivering a classical Christian education, whether online or in a classroom. At WHA you will find teachers who truly love their subjects and who have thought deeply about the way God is revealed in and through the various academic disciplines. But first and foremost, they are men and women who will “consider not only their own interests, but also the interests of (the students)”, and who model Christ-likeness in all that they do.
Then Jesus said, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
~ John 8:31-32
The diverse student population at Wilson Hill Academy creates an engaging and energizing community. Like many of our teachers, our students are spread out across the world, bringing unique personalities and perspectives to each class.
In this section, discover who we are, where we live and what we like to do. Each class is unique, so visit a few of our virtual classrooms to get a sense of the WHA experience. You’ll see how distance makes no difference in how we learn and interact with each other.
Wilson Hill Academy teaches all subjects from the perspective of an integrated whole in which absolute truth, goodness and beauty are rooted in the character of God. All courses are designed to equip students with tools of learning that they can apply beyond the boundaries of any individual classroom. True education is more about considering questions than memorizing answers, so while the content in each course is important, students can expect to learn how to grapple with that content, not just remember it until test time.
- AP Courses
Wilson Hill Academy believes that gifted, enthusiastic teachers who can bring their subjects alive are the key to successfully delivering a classical Christian education, whether online or in a classroom. At WHA, we seek to engage “Master Teachers”, who have degrees in their field, giving preference to those with advanced degrees. These Master Teachers are awarded ownership shares in Wilson Hill Academy as a component of their compensation, further recognizing the essential role they play in the educational process. WHA teachers have thought deeply about their subjects from a Christian worldview and are excited about challenging their students to do the same.
