    High School Student Life Initiative:
    "GOAL"

    The purpose of the GOAL program is to expose student's Globally to brothers and sisters in Christ who are reaching lost souls, as mandated in the New Testament's Great Commission.  In addition to sharing in these world-wide missions, the program provides Outreach opportunities for students to minister both spiritually and physically to our "neighbors" in Wilmington, as demonstrated by Jesus and His disciples. To promote school spirit, class unity, and positive, clean fun, numerous Activities throughout the school year will create a year-long competition.  To allow our students to use their God given talents for His glory, Leadership options will be presented so students can excel in their service at WCA.

    Back to School Retreat

    Every year before classes start, the students take a fun-filled retreat to the Anchorage Christian Camp. The two days are packed with  games, lake time and water activities, faculty and student skits, great food, /files/TeacherPageFiles/PhillipsMichael/MP Clip Art/IMG_2895.jpgmaking new friends, and spiritual training.  This year, the Herbster Evangelistic Team challenged the students to embrace our theme, "Different by Design." This trip builds school spirit and class enthusiasm that will last the entire year.

                            Field Day 

    /files/TeacherPageFiles/PhillipsMichael/MP Clip Art/img_2971_Resized_300x225.jpgAfter a couple of months of intense studying, students are ready for a break.  The physical education department comes to the rescue:  FIELD DAY!  This exciting event creates school unity and fun.  The high school is divided into four teams with names based on the theme for the day.  This year in "WCA /files/TeacherPageFiles/PhillipsMichael/MP Clip Art/img_2938_Resized_300x225.jpgGone Cameo," the Rapid Rabbits survived the battle that raged among them and the Thunder Chickens, Beastly Boars, and the Super Squirrels. 

     

    Biblical Emphasis 

    At Wilmington Christian Academy, every teacher is a committed Christian, who cares not only for the students' academic needs, but also their spiritual needs.  All subjects, therefore, are taught so that every student develops an thorough Biblical worldview.  Whether it is in Biology or AP English Literature, students learn what the Bible says about practical issues of life.

    Bible class meets four times a week in a normal classroom setting.  These classes are usually divided by grade and gender (i.e. freshmen boys, junior girls.)  After four years at WCA, a student will better understand the themes of the Old Testament, lessons for Christians from the New Testament, and specific topics that relate to young believers in American society.

    Every Wednesday, students meet in the auditorium for chapel.  Chapel is family time for the entire high school.  From messages from pastor from the staff at Grace Baptist Church to programs developed and performed by the students, chapel is designed to address the needs of hearts.  As students and faculty member’s hearts hear God’s word, we are better able to apply His will to our lives!

      Leadership

    In an effort to develop a young man or woman’s God-given leadership abilities, WCA offers a variety of opportunities.  Each class elects /files/TeacherPageFiles/PhillipsMichael/MP Clip Art/ACHS Logo.BMPrepresentatives who direct exciting activities that range from daily homeroom devotions to plans for the senior trip.  Both the American Christian Honor Society and the Student Council have been established to assist students in leading service related events.  Students who demonstrate Christian scholarship, leadership, character, and service are nominated for Wilmington Christian’s chapter of the ACHS.  The Student Council is open to all students who wish to serve others through activities at WCA and throughout the Wilmington community.

    Students each summer attend the Youth Legislative Training Conference hosted by the American Association of Christian Schools.  This program challenges students to view the U.S. legislative process from a biblical perspective.  Students benefit from activities including a Congressional briefing, professional workshops, and a mock Senate simulation in which real world issues are debated.  Along with visiting historical sites, students visit their Senators and Representatives.  This is truly a great experience for
    politically-minded high school students.
               

    Academics 

    WCA students annually exceed state and national averages on the ACT (American College Test) which is administered to nearly 1.2 million college bound students.  After graduation, approximately 94% of WCA students will attend a post-secondary institution.  Of those students, a quarter of them will continue their education at a Christian university or college.  Nearly every student who applies for college will be accepted into the college of his or her choice.

    The majority of WCA students will earn either the College Preparatory or Honors Diploma upon graduation. These students exceed the requirements for graduation from the North Carolina Department of Education.  In addition to advanced and honors courses, students may enroll in AP Calculus, AP English Language & Composition, and AP English Literature & CompositionA General Diploma is provided to students that meet graduation requirements of the State of North Carolina.  Resource classes are available for students with mild learning disabilities.

    Every academic program is fully accredited through the North Carolina Christian School Association and the American Christian School Association.

     

    A Well-Rounded Education 

    A student's educational needs are more than just the basic subject areas. WCA provides opportunities for students to study other avenues of interests through elective courses.  Our curriculum is enhanced with courses such as photography, broadcast journalism, newspaper, yearbook, advanced physical education, robotics, and computer applications.

    A vivid fine arts program offers instruction by quality artists in choir, band, drama, and art.  Along with programs throughout the year, these students compete in state and national festivals as they develop their God-given talents.
