Wilmington Christian Academy students have the opportunity to engage in many fun and exciting activities.  Our goal is to offer each student a chance bond with their classmates in a variety of ways, outside of the classroom, in order to create relationships that bond them together as a Patriot family.  It gives our students a break from the academic rigor, and allows them to be competitive, crazy, and creative in an array of planned events for them to enjoy.
