At West-Mont Christian Academy we strive to weave the word of God into all we do!
We offer several different opportunities for students to learn and grow in the Lord throughout the school day, week, and year. Explore some of the tangible ways in which we instill a love for Christ below.
Our Mentor Groups match groups of Middle & High School students with a staff mentor of the same gender. Groups meet twice a month on Wednesday afternoons. Mentor groups are a vital part of the student's growth because they have the opportunity to share about real life issues with adults who are also walking through these situations.
The Fuller Youth Institute says it isn't doubts that drive students away from faith, but rather the silence and fear from parents and teachers who refuse to talk honestly about their own doubts and questions about God. Fuller's research revealed that over 70% of students have serious doubts about their faith, but those who felt they had a safe place to openly discuss those doubts with adults tended to have a stronger, more lasting faith.
Elementary Chapels take place every Friday morning at 8:15. They include all elementary staff and students. Worship time is led by students and staff.
Each elementary grade, along with their teacher, also has the chance to lead the chapel service with short skits, videos, and other visuals.
Middle & High School Chapels take place twice monthly on Wednesdays at 2:15 pm. They include all middle and high school staff and students and begin with a worship time that is led by students.
Parents are invited to join us for chapel at any time!
Morning Devotions & Prayer
Prayer is a big part of campus life. Each morning, Staff and Faculty arrive early to join together for a time of scripture reading and prayer for students by name.
Then before first period, students gather in their homerooms for devotions, led by the homeroom teacher.
A great way to start the day!
Prayer for students in hallways happens at West-Mont on a regular basis. If a staff member or sometimes a student sees a need, they will engage immediately and join in prayer and petition to the Lord. Our staff understand that our greatest work with our students is in prayer. The Word tells us in Ephesians 6:12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
Service Projects & Missions
A huge part of the culture at West-Mont is helping and serving others in need. This past year, our school community served others through
“The Amazing Service Race.” Students in grades 6-12 traveled throughout the community and purchased supplies for Operation Backpack, cleaned and organized shoes for In Ian's Boots, cleaned and planned events for the Coventry Mall, and performed random acts of kindness, all in one day!
Serve Days. Students and Parents participated in 4 serve days with New Hanover Parks & Rec., cleaning parks and preparing for the township easter egg hunt.
Missions Work. The Missions Team took evangelism and service trips to Guatemala and South Carolina
Jared Boxes. National Honor Society collected toys and crafts and put together “Jared Boxes” for kids in hospitals.
Helping food pantries. A student-initiated project collected food and served in several food pantries.
Feed the Need. An all-school service project had students packing 10,000 meals in just one afternoon.
This year's all-school service project helped families in need in our communities and overseas.
"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms."1 Peter 4:10
