  • Westminster has been a wonderful place for our children to be educated! We have been at the school for ten years and we are continually pleased by the education our children are receiving. The faculty and administration are outstanding! They are involved in our children's lives, both in and out of the classroom. The challenging academic program is presented within the context of a biblically-based Christian worldview. While being challenged, our children are loved, not just as students, but as individuals uniquely created by God. Extracurricular opportunities, both in the arts and in athletics, abound at Westminster. Character development is also an integral part of the Westminster experience. We cannot imagine being any more pleased with any school! We heartily recommend Westminster!

  • Excellent, academically challenging school with a Christian environment. The school college placement statistics speak for themselves. Faculty that really care about your child's development, character and education. Parents are very involved with the school and are committed to their child's successful development. The best choice for education in the Augusta area.

  • This school is wonderful! We have had at least one child there for 13 years, and have no regrets. It truly does teach our children from a Biblical perspective, and has been instrumental in giving our children a strong academic preparation for college and also a strong spiritual preparation for life. The teachers give individualized attention and care about their students.

  • After ten years at Westminster, we are still thrilled with the education our children are receiving! We have found Westminster to be truly Christ-centered. The Christian faith is integrated into the challenging academic curriculum. Character development is an important part of the Westminster experience as is participation in extra-curricular activities, both in the arts and in athletics. At Westminster, our children have been loved by the faculty, staff, and administration, not just as students, but as individuals uniquely created by God. I would heartily recommend Westminster Schools of Augusta!

  • This school teaches to a multidiverse population. The teachers and administrators are some of the best at Fresno Unified. They go up and beyond to make sure students are learning and reaching their full potentials! Way to go Birney!
