who we are

Wesley Christian Academy, formally, Child Development Center, is a ministry of First United Methodist Church of Clermont.  Our mission at the Wesley Christian Academy is to provide a Christ centered, loving, nurturing, and safe environment where preschoolers and elementary students have the opportunity to develop cognitively, emotionally, physically, socially, and spiritually, to the best of his or her ability. 


Our goal is to provide a creative, developmentally appropriate curriculum that will address each child’s individual needs. 


Our philosophy is a hands-on learning environment that develops the skills necessary to help a child develop a love for learning and the self-esteem to become an independent thinker and a follower of Christ.


We believe all children are a unique creation of God, who can make choices, believe in themselves, share with others, and respect the world around them. 


The Wesley Christian Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of color, race, national and ethnic origin in administration of its education policies, scholarship programs, and other administered programs.
