Principal's Corner

2018-19 School year

As August approached a few weeks ago, I could not believe this would be my 18th year here at Wilcox Academy as a coach or teacher or headmaster. As the old saying goes, "Time flies when you are having fun."  

As we begin to start school for the 2018/19 year, I want to welcome all of our returning teachers that do an outstanding job each and every year.   I am grateful for the teachers who work here and strive to educate our students. We have added two new teachers to our staff this year, Mrs. Ann Smith who teaches High School Science, and Coach Beck, PE, football and softball. We want to welcome them, too. Also, we want to welcome all of our new students who have joined us for the new year and the families of all the students, too. Of course, we welcome back all or our WA family for a great, new school year.

Finally. Wilcox Academy was awarded a "Blue Ribbon School". This could not happen without WA having teachers, students, and parents working toward a common goal of educating our young people.

We are looking forward to another great school year. We are continually working to improve and make Wilcox Academy the best school it can be.
