A closer look at WSA Living.

Dear WSA Families,

As an outgrowth of our values, we expect all members of our community to be present and be committed to their own personal growth during the school day. As a parent, expect to receive a phone call if your child is late or absent. We know you value your child’s personal and academic growth as much as we do, and we believe that together we can ensure all students are present and ready to learn

Best, Principal Yira Salcedo

     College Application Week! October 22-26
The purpose of College Application week is to provide an increase of student college applications, create structured opportunity and resources for WSA high school seniors to apply to postsecondary institutions. Programs and activities will be hosted during the school day that assists students in completing college applications, and engage the school and local communities, families and others in creating college-going culture within the school.

Leaders of Tomorrow!
9th graders Malinda N., Christine C., and Brianna P. took the initiative to form a club entitled Leader of Tomorrow as a space for freshmen to have a voice throughout their four years at WSA. Leaders of Tomorrow introduces participants to responsible activism. Students will learn how to organize events and develop leadership skills. The 9th grade team is super excited to embark on this journey with our dedicated freshmen.

The Guidance Department would like to take this opportunity to welcome our families to Westchester Square Academy. We are looking forward to working with you this year in providing academic and personal/emotional success to your child. We can be reached at the following extensions:

9th Grade – Ms. Callahan Ext. 4011

10th Grade – Ms. Kaplan Ext. 4012/Ms. Vargas Ext. 4013

11th Grade – Ms. Vargas Ext. 4013

12th Grade – Ms. Massiah Ext. 4016
