I joined the Wonderful College Prep Academy team in 2011 as a 7th-grade teacher and knew right away I had found my home. The students and the staff are amazing, and are the driving force behind my work at the academy.  The mission and vision at WCPA is one that I not only believe in but what I want for my own child which is why he is a 2nd grader WCPA and we could not be prouder to be part of the WCPA family.
