Spiritual Life


At WCA, we have an incredible opportunity to reach and educate our students.  WCA is more than simply a school; it is a ministry where students are given the opportunity to encounter Jesus Christ up close and personal.

Through chapel programs, Bible studies, mentoring groups, community service opportunities, mission trips and many more activities, we are able to expose our students to the goodness and the relevancy of God. We are training the next generation of leaders to carry these truths into the world.

Elements of Christian Life at Wilmington Christian Academy

At Wilmington Christian Academy our purpose is clear, we partner with the family to equip and mobilize the student to impact the world for Jesus Christ. Our teachings are distinctively Biblical worldview; we believe that the Bible is the foundation upon which all education rests; in the classroom, on stage, through athletics, and in all extra-curricular activities.

Community Service

Our community service involvement was born out of a desire to help students fulfill the Christian call to discipleship and stewardship. Following the example of Christ, we are called to serve Him by serving others. At WCA, we give our students many opportunities to serve others, not only in our communities but the world as well.

WCA provides students with opportunities to serve throughout the school year. We offer all school opportunities whereby all three school divisions (High School, Middle School and Elementary School) participate in donating food, clothes, or toys for various charities.

Chapel

Our chapel program shares the gospel in culturally relevant terms.  The purpose is to have a corporate worship experience in which students have the opportunity to meet Christ where they are with the ultimate goal of helping them to walk daily in a committed relationship with Jesus Christ. Chapel is a weekly scheduled program filled with music, dramatic presentations, and speakers from the faculty, as well as, the local church.

Daily Bible Studies

Bible Studies exist to glorify God through a deepening relationship where each participate is serving an active role of fellowship, accountability, and encouragement. Every student attends a grade-level Bible time each day where God’s truths are discovered by studying His Word. Scripture is memorized on a weekly basis.

Mission Trips

Each year students from WCA serve Jesus Christ by serving others on mission trips.  In the past, students have traveled to China, Peru, Honduras, Haiti, Costa Rica, and numerous other places.

Retreats

Fall Retreats are designed to give our students opportunities (early in the school year) to meet new friends, to fellowship together with each other and with their teachers, to set goals, and to worship both individually and collectively. These retreats are held each August. The high school and middle school go to the Anchorage Christian Camp for their retreats.

 

See You At The Pole

Each September, our students observe “See You at the Pole”, a nationwide effort to have students gather around their local flagpoles to pray for our nation and its leaders.
