Westminster Christian Academy announced today that it will launch a new upper school in Lafayette beginning in the 2019-2020 school year.

The school will add grades 7 through 12 in their own separate space on the existing Lafayette campus that currently services grades K3-6. Within a few years, the Lafayette upper school intends to relocate to its own campus in Lafayette Parish, according to a press release from the school.

Westminster Christian Academy is celebrating 40 years since its founding in 1978 on the grounds of a small church in Opelousas with students in K3 and K4 classes. Within two years land was purchased and grades were added where the current K3-12th grade campus is established in Opelousas. By 1984 there were over 300 students, and middle and high school classes were added. In 1988 WCA held its first high school graduation and continued to expand into Lafayette the next year. By the year 2000, the Lafayette Campus was established at its current location.
