The WCA Board of Trustees has established a GoFundMe Campaign to help pay for restoration efforts, building maintenance, and material supplies for Washington College Academy.
“Our goal is to raise $100,000 for the school,” said Dr. Robert Cupp, president of WCA. “With those funds, we can perform much-needed repairs to the buildings and grounds as well as purchase equipment and materials to support our continuing educational programs.”

It is with deep sadness that the Board of Trustees of Washington College Academy announces the passing of Dr. Robert Orr, WCA president in an automobile accident on June 23. Dr. Orr has been an ardent supporter and leader for the school for many years and had touched the lives of so many people. He was our leader and he will be missed.
