Our Mission through Crisis:
“To follow the framework our State Legislators & Medical Professionals have decidedly provided us; as Western Michigan Christian School Collaborative strongly believes in making fact-based, faith-driven decisions that provide our Students and Community with the safest, most rationalized, most Christ-centered environment possible. Dedication to College-Preparatory, Christian Education remains a top priority and our Administration and Staff are highly committed to the task of providing this to our Student body no matter the circumstances of the environment. We see this World-wide epidemic and the footprint it is leaving on our communities as another opportunity presented to us as believers to exemplify our strong faith and fervent trust in our Lord and his unfailing plan.”
It’s very important that we keep our community updated on the details. We also want to hear from you.
Current: Our communication to the WMC School Community has been in three letters and we have also reached out to our parents with a survey. We received wonderful feedback from our community.
Future: WMC will host webinars and town hall meetings to inform our school community of our reopening plan for the academic year 2020-2021.
Michigan Safe Start Plan – Phase 4
We’ve consulted with the State of Michigan, legal advisors, medical professionals and public and private schools in the effort to deliver to and excellent reopening plan for our students and teachers.
As of now, we are in Phase 4 of the Michigan Safe Start Plan for reopening the schools for fall of 2020.
For WMC, that means that on August 24, we will open our Norton Shores campus with in-person instruction with required safety protocols.
The intent is to have a more interactive experience. To be able to achieve this the safest way possible, we have outlined the safety protocols to which each student, parents and WMC staff/faculty will need to adhere.
