Mission Statement

Western Academy is a private, independent, liberal arts, lower and middle school for boys.

Through personal attention and dedicated effort, teachers foster a genuine passion for learning and provide an integrated education, assisting parents in developing the whole person: intellectual, moral, physical, and spiritual. With a spirit of adventure and freedom, students are encouraged to approach their academic work with professional excellence and to strive in the life of virtue.

A Catholic priest of the Prelature of Opus Dei serves as chaplain and oversees the religious education program.

...precisely because we are children of God, we can contemplate in love and wonder everything as coming from the hands of our Father, God the Creator. And so we become contemplatives in the middle of the world, loving the world.
— St. JosemarĂ­a Escrivá
