The 21st Century presents new economic, environmental, political and social challenges, and curriculum in WJCC schools is rich and varied.

The WJCC K-12 core curriculum is derived from Virginia’s  Department of Education standards in mathematics, English/Language Arts, social studies, world language, the arts, science, technology and physical education.

Our instructional strategies focus on bringing this curriculum to every student. Instruction in WJCC’s schools must be flexible enough to respond to the needs of children who learn in different ways. Different instructional approaches address differences in students’ prior knowledge, personal interests and relative strengths and weaknesses in different subjects, and we have a strong commitment to developing instructional techniques that engage all children
