Summer Update and Happy 4th of July!!
It has been an exciting summer at Wesleyan! The academic and sports camps have gotten off to a great start and have been well attended.
It’s not too late to sign up for camps such as STEM’s Moving Motion and Wild Science camps for elementary and middle school students, or the high school’s C.A.M.P. (College Application Management Program), Summer Reading Prep, and SAT Math camp. For those interested in athletic camps, the all-sports, tennis, basketball and wrestling camps will be held at various times in July. For additional information about all of these camps, please click here.
The dirt has been poured and grass will soon be growing on a new fenced-in athletic field that is being created in the grassy area at the Centennial Center. Beginning in August, elementary and middle school students will have a spruced up area to play and practice sports.
Our technology staff is working hard this summer installing new computers for the faculty and staff and moving to Google’s G Suite for education, which will allow greater communication and educational integration with the students.
These are exciting summer days at Wesleyan, and we thank the Lord for his blessings that continue to be upon us.
Next Tuesday, families across America will celebrate the 4th of July. As we briefly reflect on America’s heritage, history reveals that John Quincy Adams once said, “The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: that it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.” Even the Huffington Post reported that “It’s difficult to contend that any faith has exercised even close to the amount of influence that Christianity has…. “‘In God we trust’ on our money to the ‘so help me God’ that Washington improvised in his acceptance of the presidency,” the signs of a strong Christian influence are definitely upon this nation.
Because of this freedom we still enjoy today, Wesleyan is privileged and blessed to offer to your children not only the opportunity of a high caliber, college-preparatory, K-12 curriculum but one that is taught from a Christian perspective. The early 20th century theologian, John Gresham Machen so eloquently stated:
“A truly Christian education is possible only when Christian education underlies not a part, but all, of the curriculum of the school. True learning and true piety go hand in hand, and Christianity embraces the whole of life – those are great central convictions that underlie the Christian school.”
We count it and honor to partner with you in the educational journey of your children. We hope that you and your family have a wonderful and safe July 4th celebration as we all recount the blessings of living in the greatest of all nations.
