What is WCFS?
Wellspring Christian Family Schools is a church operated educational institution, officially recognized in the state of Maryland since 1983, with a goal to inspire and assist parents in Treasuring God’s Design for their family by promoting academic excellence in their home.
Christ-centered educational communities composed of families and churches that have a vision for treasuring God’s design for the family in the home and church community.
Lawfully provide academic supervision and accredited transcripts for students who are taught at home or in a nontraditional environment.
Combine Biblical philosophy of parental roles in education with a nationally-recognized administrative system
Serve as educational assistants to parents and churches by providing exceptional administrative methods and quality academic credentials, thereby equaling and surpassing the standards of excellence found in public institutions.
We value the local church as a community designed by God to be a source of spiritual edification and nurture.
We require meaningful church attendance for all enrolled families.
We partner with local churches to assist them in building educational communities for the families in their congregations.
Enrolling with WCFS replaces government scrutiny with Christian accountability. Maryland homeschool families are mandated to operate their home instruction programs under the intrusive eye of the local county boards of education or under the supervision of a private school or educational institution of a bona fide church. This is essentially a choice between being monitored by government bureaucrats who have little incentive to support the success of your homeschool program, or being accountable to a like-minded, caring support team who will work with you to make your homeschool program a success.
Enrolling with WCFS provides your students with well-recognized academic records. WCFS’ commitment to academic excellence and records-integrity has earned it the respect of state and national authorities. WCFS has professional relationships with the College Board and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and has been given Tier 1 status by the US Armed Forces. Graduates from WCFS’ Academy Program have been accepted into colleges and universities throughout the country, and even internationally. In an era where homeschool graduates sometimes face difficulty in having their records accepted, a WCFS-issued diploma and transcript are very helpful credentials.
Enrolling with WCFS gives your family access to a support team who is there for you year round. WCFS has a staff committed to providing care and support to families in numerous ways throughout the year. From phone calls and emails to in person meetings, WCFS staff are available to help you navigate the homeschooling journey. The WCFS team’s combined experience includes education, pastoral ministry, the legal field, and actual homeschooling! Events throughout the year, from our Family Leadership Conference to our Nathaniel Bowditch Mentoring Clinic are intended to build-up parents and students alike.
At WCFS, our mission is to help parents to raise up Godly children in an ungodly world. It is a very difficult task! What does success look like?
