Founded in 1993 as a ministry of First Woodway Baptist Church, Woodway Christian School is a member of the Texas Association of Baptist Schools and is fully accredited by the Accreditation Commission of the Texas Association of Baptist Schools. Our prayer is that every child who attends our school will experience the love of Christ and begin to lay a strong foundation for a life that is successful in every way.
The mission of Woodway Christian School is to provide quality Christian education, impacting lives now and for eternity.
Woodway Christian School’s objective in teaching children is to enable them to:
- grow in understanding and love for themselves, their families, and others in their world.
- grow in the ability to think creatively, develop good study habits, solve problems, and develop good language skills.
- work as an individual and within a group.
- enjoy creative expression through music, art, and play.
Woodway Christian School places high value on the lives of the children attending our school because we believe God wants and desires a wonderful future for each child. We stand committed to partnering with families in giving their children all the love, encouragement, and training necessary to help each one achieve their highest potential.
We offer Christ’s love in faith, believing that He alone can make the real difference in our world.
Through investing in the lives of our students, Woodway Christian School impacts the future by helping children develop into emotionally, spiritually, academically, and physically mature adults who can contribute to society in positive ways.

Quality education meets affordability at WCS.
Holistic Ministry Integration
WCS is a dedicated ministry of the church (First Woodway Baptist Church), ensuring that your child's education is grounded in a values-driven environment. We unapologetically uphold biblical principles, providing your child with a spiritually enriching educational journey.
Our students consistently outperform expectations, achieving scores 2-3 grade levels higher than required. When students graduate 8th grade, they’re typically on a college level, having already completed high school math. Our dedicated teachers leverage the latest technology, utilizing Smartboards and an advanced computer lab. Here, academic excellence propels your child beyond conventional standards.
Comprehensive Testing Approach
At WCS, our testing approach, centered on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) rather than STAAR, ensures a more comprehensive evaluation. With students consistently scoring in the top 20%, the ITBS provides a broader, nationally-benchmarked perspective on academic strengths.
Emphasis on Character Building
Woodway Christian School goes beyond education. Rooted in a biblical foundation of truth and ethics, we instill the importance of personal responsibility by teaching concepts like the Matthew 18 principle, emphasizing the value of each person and their God-given gifts, and encouraging participation in competitive athletics starting in 4th grade. Your child doesn't just learn; they grow into a resilient, compassionate, and principled leader, equipped to make a positive impact on the world. We’re committed to nurturing caring, quality citizens for tomorrow.
