Student Life

The WCA Experience

WCA is dedicated to helping to develop the entire child, and we offer a wide range of student activities and opportunities that enrich the overall student experience. We offer multiple opportunities for students to explore their talents and interests through our student life program. Club opportunities are available to students in all three divisions. Our Odyssey of the Mind teams have consistently advanced to nationals. Student produced video productions have placed high nationally, and a 2016 student produced video won a national competition winning the school new lockers and scholarship money. Opportunities for new clubs and activities abound and will continue to grow in the years to come.

Donna Walls

Director of Student Life

Welcome to WCA! As Director of Student Life at WCA, I am extremely fortunate to touch the lives of each of our students.  The goals of our Student Life programs are to be an avenue that God uses to water the spiritual roots of each student, so they may grow to show the fruits of Christ to the world around them.  We work hard to encourage our students to model the life of Christ more and more each day.  Our students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities and learn how to use their special gifts to honor and glorify God. 

First, our community service projects are a great way for our faculty and students to work together to engage the community that we live in with Christ’s transforming power and love.  Second, throughout the year, students will be able to participate in various clubs such as Debate Team, Chess Club, Robotics, Mock Trial and Student Council.  Third, WCA students will have a chance to impact the world we live in with our mission trips.  We are building partnerships with different organizations so that your child will learn to demonstrate Christ’s love through action.  Fourth, students enjoy a weekly interactive chapel service. Chapel time incorporates Biblical worldview teaching, special speakers, and worship and prayer time.  The students have their own praise and worship team, and chapel speakers include pastors, missionaries, inspirational guests and teachers. 

We believe at WCA that God calls us and appoints us to serve, and I am humbled and excited by the opportunity to work with the students, parents, staff and administration of WCA in our journey to know God and make Him known!

Middle and Upper school students are seen as role models and they are expected to positively impact the lower school community. Every lower school student is paired up with a middle or upper school student each fall through the Prayer Buddy program. Prayer Buddies spend time together during special events throughout the year, allowing for meaningful and impactful interaction between students in the different divisions. Character traits such as leadership, compassion, and cooperation are reinforced through the Prayer Buddy program.

 

As a Christian school, the Gospel is presented to students through weekly chapels, Bible classes, voluntary Bible studies, and daily interactions. Retreats at the start of each year for middle and high school students give opportunities for fun, fellowship, and spiritual growth. Upper school students have the opportunity to serve around the world on teacher-led mission trips.

Did you know that our leadership class and technology team collaborated to win the grand prize of the national Duralife UnLocker Challenge? The two groups have collaborated to submit several entries to C-SPAN's StudentCam competition, entries that have placed third and among the very selective honorable mention (top 5%) categories.
