It is the desire of the school to provide a course of study which will produce spiritually strong Christians, while providing the finest of academic training. Winter Haven Christian School uses the best Bible-based curriculum available to educate your children. A Beka is primarily used in Elementary School and WHCS is currently phasing in Saxon Math for our Elementary and Secondary programs.
