The Need for a Private Christian School is here
ildwood Christian Academy is a college preparatory Christian school dedicated to providing

Wildwood Christian Academy believes that a child’s mental, spiritual, intellectual and physical growth are best achieved in a Christian environment. Wildwood Christian Academy adopts the Christian World View and welcomes students from all faiths and denominations. Through the belief and teaching of Christian principles along with a strong educational curriculum the student will be able to acquire the necessary tools and support to meet the challenges of college and life’s experiences.
Wildwood Christian Academy further believes that parents of our students must partner their time and be strongly involved in assisting their children in their studies and in their growth in the Christian faith.
Students will be educated through a strong core curriculum in math, science, language arts and social studies. Students will be enriched in areas of art, music, drama, foreign language, physical education and computer training. Our students will also be educated through bible courses, chapel attendance and the daily teachings by our Christian teachers and administration.
ildwood Christian Academy will be located in Pickens County on a 14 acre tract of land at the intersection of Cove Road and Steve Tate Highway. The area is rich in tradition and near the North Georgia mountain community of Big Canoe. Wildwood Christian Academy will be centrally located to Jasper, Dawsonville, Canton, Cumming, and Dahlonega.
