Super Saturday 2013

Students Enjoy a Relay Race at Super Saturday
This past weekend, the entire WCA community joined together to present Super Saturday 2013!  Hundreds of parent and student volunteers, along with faculty and staff, spent countless hours preparing for this annual event, and a good time was had by all!  From inflatables to carnival games and rides, there was something for everyone to enjoy.  Many grades sponsored food stations, where offerings included everything from Chick-fil-A to cheesecake-on-a-stick.  The Walking Taco booth was a big hit, as well!  The Silent Auction raised more than $30,000, and featured items like vacation packages, concert tickets, autographed sports memorabilia, and the ever-popular senior parking space!  A tremendous thanks go to everyone who helped make this event such a success!  Each grade and classroom benefits from the proceeds of their individual booths, and the auction money raised goes toward the purchase of Mimio Teach System for our classrooms!  

New Technology at WCA!

Mrs. Craft Demonstrates the New Mimio Technology at Super Saturday
If you missed the Mimio Teach System demonstration on Saturday, it truly is a remarkable piece of technology.  Ordinary whiteboards come to life, simply by adding the Mimio Teach bar!  Lesson plans can be shared among teachers - no matter their location - and students can engage in lessons that are interactive and fun! The possibilities are endless! Our goal is to provide a Mimio Teach System for each classroom. Currently, we have 10 Mimio Teach Systems on campus. If you would like to make a restricted gift to purchase a Mimio Teach System for your child's classroom, please contact     

WCA Welcomes New Board Member Clayton Hemphill

The Hemphill Family
Please extend a warm welcome to one of WCA's newest board members, Clayton Hemphill!  Clayton and his wife, Teresa, have three children, Avery (third grade), Parker (kindergarten), and Arden.  Clayton, a CPA, works at Red Hat as the Director of the Internal Audit division. He is an active member at Colonial Baptist Church, where he and Teresa teach a three-year-old Sunday School class, and somehow also finds time to coach a soccer team! Originally from Dallas, Texas, Clayton graduated from Samford University, in Birmingham, Alabama, and enjoys traveling globally. He is an avid reader and loves studying scripture. Clayton and Teresa are so thankful to be part of the Wake Christian Academy Family, and are especially grateful for the impact and daily Godly influence the teachers have had on their entire family! Thank you, Clayton, for your service on WCA's Board of Directors! 
Bulldog Summer Camp

Science Camp at WCA is offered June 3-5, for rising 4th through 6th-graders!
Summer Camp at Wake Christian Academy is the perfect opportunity for your child to explore his/her inner scientist!  For three days in June, science campers will discover the wonders of God's creation, and work in their own mini laboratory! Each day features a different experiment, designed to help students learn more about God's design and plan for us as stewards of this Earth. Campers will build and launch their own rockets, design an eco-column with living creatures, and discover a hidden world of microscopic organisms that live among the waters in our state! Join us and see what science is all about!  For information on all summer camp programs at WCA, visit!
