We desire that students have a standard of dress that is modest and neat. Our dress guidelines for students in all grade levels can be found in the Parental Handbook.
Because of the size of our school, transportation is limited. In most cases, the surrounding public school systems within which the student resides (Allentown*, Bethlehem, Northampton, and Whitehall) will provide bus transportation. A form requesting bus transportation from your particular school district will be provided with your registration packet.
*Note: Allentown School District only provides transportation for students through the 5th grade. For Allentown students in grades 6, 7, and 8, WCS maintains a van to help parents who need help transporting their children, but space is limited and provided on a first come, first served basis.
To request transportation from your home school district, you must fill out an Act 372 request form. At registration you will receive the form. Please sign and return the form to our school office, we will forward it to the school district.
There are no technology requirements necessary during the school day, although access to a home computer can be helpful in completing home assignments. Please see our “Technology Use Policy” page accessible from the “Parental Resources” drop-down menu for more information.
Because of the ongoing pandemic, visits to school are not encouraged for the safety of our students and staff. If you would like to visit, please contact the WCS principal.

Tuition and Finances:
WCS charges a registration fee of $400 per student, which covers the textbooks, workbooks, student insurance, and various school materials.
A 10% discount is offered for completing registration by July 1st, prior to the beginning of the school year.
Because of our small size and low tuition, Whitehall Christian School is unable to offer extensive financial assistance.
A limited number of scholarships are available for students whose families are in financial need. Details, requirements, and application forms are available from the school treasurer.
Our school does, however, participate in the PFE (Partnership for Eternity) program which offers some financial assistance for a limited number of students. Preference is given to families with the greatest need, and is on a first come, first served basis. More information about the PFE program is available from the school Treasurer.
Some parents have been able to find sponsors for their child from relatives and/or members of their local churches. It is the parent’s responsibility to find sponsors if they so desire.
Any financial aid is for the duration of the current school year only.
A new financial aid request must be made for each school year if desired.
WCS offers a 10% discount on tuition for each additional, non-constituent, grade 1-8 child, from the same family, enrolled at the school.
Yes. The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) recognizes the Whitehall Christian School as a Pennsylvania State registered school. The National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA) accredits the school.
Our curriculum for grade 1 –8 curriculum is designed to prepare students for each succeeding grade level, and eventually a high school curriculum. More information about our Elementary curriculum can be found here.
Your student’s assignments and grades can be viewed in Jupiter, our online learning platform, throughout each quarter. Grade cards are distributed electronically each quarter. In addition to regularly scheduled conferences, we encourage you to contact your student’s teacher when you have questions or concerns.
Technology is integrated throughout our curriculum. Computers, tablets, and smart boards are used as appropriate for instruction in our classrooms.
Whitehall Christian School partners with the Carbon-Lehigh Intermediate Unit to provide certain types of support for students who need it. To find out if WCS can provide support particular to your student’s needs, please contact our principal.
School sponsored service projects vary by grade level and give students and teachers the opportunity to be a positive witness for Christ in our community.
Absolutely not, though you and your child will gain the most benefit if you are a Christian or at least sympathetic with Christian beliefs.
At WCS, students’ freedom to think for themselves is respected and nurtured, and students are encouraged to learn how to make good moral decisions regardless of their creed or belief system. We strongly believe that no one should be pressured into church membership, but join willingly as they choose.
