White Horse Christian Academy is accredited through the National Association of Private Schools.  By meeting accreditation criteria through this organization parents can be assured that quality instruction and appropriate curriculum is being followed.  Upon graduation it is valuable that your student will receive a diploma and transcript from an accredited school.


WHCA has designed two different programs to meet students' needs.  For students who thrive with face to face classes we provide an on campus program where the students receive direct instruction from highly qualified teachers.  On campus instruction is provided Monday-Thursday in a traditional school year. 


For those students who cannot attend on campus instruction, we provide a distant learning program. We utilize a web based program called Ignitia for our distant learners.  The distant learning program is most successful for highly motivated independent students.

White Horse Christian Academy is dedicated to providing a strong Christian based education that will empower our students with solid values, work ethic and leadership



White Horse Christian Academy began in the spring of 2016 when Vanessa Halford retired after 30 years in public education.  It had always been a dream of Vanessa's to develop a school that met the educational as well as spiritual needs of students.  Since that beginning, White Horse Christian Academy has tripled in size and built a new facility on the outskirts of Stephenville, Texas. 


Vanessa has over 30 years of experience in public education with a BS degree in Education and an M.Ed. in Guidance and Counseling.  She has worked with grades K-12 as a teacher, counselor and program director for both special education and gifted and talented. 


All of the classroom teachers are certified and possess a number of certifications.  These teachers chose to teach at White Horse because of their love for children and the LORD. They strive each day to help their students become independent, confident, and Christian like thinkers.
