Parent Teacher Organization
The purpose of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) at Wesleyan Christian Academy is:
- To promote, enhance, and enrich Christian education at Wesleyan.
- To strengthen the bonds of fellowship among WCA families.
- To support Wesleyan Christian Academy by providing a variety of activities and services to enhance the school.
- Open Houses
- Faculty & Staff Appreciation Week
- Early Education Center Enhancements
- Student Service Challenge Scholarship
- Academic Awards
- Prayer Partners
- Special Projects
The PTO sponsors Faculty & Staff Appreciation Week each year and coordinates all activities related to this special week. Parents and students are invited to participate by sending notes of appreciation to faculty and staff and contributing baked goods for a staff continental breakfast held on Tuesday morning of Faculty & Staff Appreciation Week.
The PTO provides financial support for the purchase of various Early Education Center items, including classroom furniture, toys, books, playground equipment, etc. This support is based upon the involvement of the child care staff and parents in the annual Fun Festival. Some of the funds from the Fun Festival are shared with the childcare program.
The PTO has provided special support to various programs and projects sponsored within the academy, such as Art Impact Day, Mission Fair, Wellness Committee Fairs, and Spiritual Emphasis Week. In addition, the PTO has contributed to the purchase of special equipment, such as sound equipment for the dining hall and middle school gym, and security cameras. These projects are determined by the PTO based upon requests and available funding.

Father, we ask for a powerful and deep work of the Holy Spirit among the administration, teachers, staff, students, and parents of Wesleyan Christian Academy. We plead that the Holy Spirit will do a powerful and gracious work in our hearts. Holy Spirit, release Your power in this school and meet the particular spiritual needs of the administration, teachers, staff, students, and parents of Wesleyan Christian Academy. May You be glorified! Amen!
So if you faithfully obey the commands
I am giving you today - to love the Lord
your God and to serve him with all your
heart and with all your soul.
