Affording Westminster

A Great Investment in Your Child's Future

An investment in your child's education at Westminster Schools of Augusta yields a lifetime of returns. Here, you can watch your child fulfill his or her full potential and graduate prepared to flourish in life's future endeavors.

"Because of our parents' sacrifices, we both were given the gift of a wonderful Christ-centered education. We are thrilled that our own children have the opportunity to receive that same excellent education. It is our hope that Westminster will continue to educate students for generations to come."
