Clubs and Extracurriculars at Wake Christian Academy

A private Christian school where your child can explore their gifts and talents

As a parent, it brings you much joy to know that your child is valued and embraced in a community. But you’re not looking for just any community. You’re searching for that place where…

Your child’s God-given gifts will be discovered and refined.
They’ll be uplifted and guided by teachers who genuinely care.
Your child will grow together with friends who share the same passions.

At Wake Christian Academy, we value the same things. As a private Christian K-12 school in Raleigh, NC, part of our goal is encouraging students to strive for excellence beyond academics. We aim to empower your child by providing fine arts, athletics, clubs, and extracurricular activities so that they can have a well-rounded educational experience.

The WCA Difference

Learn the significance of clubs and extracurriculars in our school

To us, clubs and extracurriculars are more than just activities for students to pass the time. We believe these are opportunities for your child to learn how God has given them talents and abilities to use for His glory. Explore how we’ve intentionally designed these avenues for growth.

Whole Child Development

We believe that educating children should cover all areas of growth. Clubs and extracurriculars help students enhance other abilities they can use as they fulfill God’s distinct calling in their lives.

Genuine Connection With Peers

Activities outside the classroom are also ways for your child to form friendships. Our community allows students to enjoy shared interests in an uplifting, Christ-centered environment.

Leadership Cultivation

As students join clubs and extracurriculars, they’re given roles to grow in their leadership. Whether it’s communicating their ideas, planning projects, or collaborating with others, these skills are continuously practiced.

Unifying the School Community

One unique feature of our community is that we intentionally bring together students across all grade levels. The older students get to volunteer and mentor the younger children, bringing a sense of unity and joy to our school.

“Wake Christian Academy is a school I am glad I attended. Being at a smaller school, I have been able to connect with everyone in my class, building friendships that will last after graduation. I’m fortunate to have teachers who care about me and want me to succeed. More importantly, whether it be athletics or academics, I’m surrounded by people who point me to Christ, which has strengthened my faith for any obstacle in life.”

– Luke Cherry, Class of 2023
