Even though the school ages range from toddler to grade 8, there is a strong sense of school spirit. The older students help take care of the younger children in their leadership and service opportunities. Many of the grade 8 graduates started at the school from toddler and Wesley is like a second home. I have even seen them return for community events, concerts and even to volunteer to help move during the school renovations. When you walk through the halls of Wesley you can sense that each student is not only happy and comfortable but also takes pride in being a Wesley Student. they are all very courteous and respectful. I can see the younger students looking up to to the older students as they have many interactions in extracurricular events and house events.
From the very first time our family walked into Wesley Christian Academy for a tour, we sensed it was a special place. Not only were the staff warm and friendly, but the students as well. Coming from a public school, my girls immediately noticed the differences, especially in the attitude of the students and how orderly things were from as simple as students lining up the shoes in the hallway. My eldest was surprised that students in her class actually did their work during class time and everyone was respectful of each other. Wesley is also a very spirited environment. Students from JK to Grade 8 are divided into four house teams to build school spirit. These teams are used for school events such as Reading Buddies, intramural sports and also include many other opportunities for students to connect and encourage one another in friendly competition. The winning house team is rewarded at the end of the school year by having the cafeteria decorated in honor of their house color. Other events throughout the year include dress-up days (eg. Wacky Wednesdays), Care and Share which takes place monthly where a class focuses on raising money and awareness for missionaries, the local food bank, community help centers, etc.
