Health Services

As we continually grow life-long learners at WCA, we recognize that health is essential to optimal learning. In order to reach their highest potential, students must be educated, empowered, and equipped to make healthy choices so their focus can remain on academics and citizenship. The WCA Health Services Team strives to maintain the physical, mental, and social health of students so they can benefit maximally from their educational opportunities. Our goal is to remove health-related barriers to learning and meet students’ health care needs while ensuring they are allowed every opportunity to thrive and excel in both the classroom and extracurricular activities.

Student Accident Insurance

Student accident insurance is becoming an important option for families due to lack of insurance options, an ever-increasing rise in deductibles, and co-insurance requirements. If medical insurance coverage is not available to your family, we offer the option to purchase insurance through Markel Insurance agency on behalf of your children. This program helps families cope financially in case of an accident.
