Our high school students participate in a weekly Chapel service. Designed to promote a greater appreciation for worship and a desire to grow spiritually, Chapel is in an important part of our high school program. We pray that this time spent each week will bear eternal fruit!
Key Club provides our high school students with the opportunity to develop leadership skills, plan and participate in community service projects, interact with other Key Club members from across the region, and acquire valuable experiences helpful in college admission and scholarship efforts. It also provides an excellent avenue for social interaction and developing relational skills. Parent volunteers play a vital role as Key Club coaches and advisors, and their efforts are greatly appreciated by our students.
Our elementary and junior high classes have a parent volunteer who serves as Social Activities Coordinator. This individual plans several activities through the year to provide social opportunities for students. All-school skating parties and all-school picnics are planned as well. Parents and younger siblings are invited to participate in these events, giving a venue for families and students of all ages to interact.
Field trips are a valuable means of enhancing what is taught in the classroom. The elementary and junior high classes have a parent who serves as the Field Trip Coordinator for that group. He/she works with the teacher to plan and execute one or two field trips per semester. Students are expected to participate in these learning opportunities. They are typically scheduled for non-school hours.
Life Of Faith Girls Club
This club is for girls in the elementary grades, and meets once a month from noon to 1:45. This group utilizes the Life of Faith material, “which strives to help our young girls to actively, intentionally, and passionately seek to trust God and apply Biblical principles to the issues of daily life.” The club focuses on character qualities and learning to get along with others. These monthly meetings include lunch, a teaching time, and a variety of hands-on activities.
Life Of Virtue Girls Club
Life of Virtue is for 7th and 8th grade girls, and meets once a month from noon to 1:45. With the goal of helping young ladies grow deeper in their faith and make right choices in their lives, this monthly study will emphasize being and becoming women of character who reflect the image of Jesus Christ.
Talent Share Night
Each spring C.E.A. students are given the opportunity to share a talent with the C.E.A. family. Students are encouraged to share a recitation, skit, song, artwork, etc. Classes often enjoy organizing a group presentation. This is a wonderful opportunity for extended family members to meet the C.E.A. family, and we look forward to Talent Share Night each year.
