Start of School Year
Wilson Preparatory Academy is very excited about the start of the school year. The first day of school will be on August 15, 2017. The last day of school will be on May 26, 2018.
Structured and Safe Environment
Wilson Preparatory Academy believes that organization and safety ensure students learn. WPA students will wear uniforms and have to meet high behavioral expectations. Additionally, our small class sizes allow us to build close relationships with students and their parents, enabling us to guarantee safety and make a better impact on their academic success and character development. In short, Wilson Preparatory Academy will be a place where teachers can teach and students can learn.
