THE WOODLANDS, TX – Woodlands Christian Academy hosted a special opportunity for the Class of 2023 to fellowship with one another and usher in their senior year of high school during Senior Sunrise. Held on the morning of August 19, 2022, Senior Sunrise is a popular tradition that culminates with the group admiring the beauty of the morning sunrise as a group.
When the students arrived on campus, they were greeted with a full breakfast and coffee before remarks from students and administrators began. Senior Jayden Scrushy took the opportunity to urge his classmates to be grateful, saying, “I think we have to be thankful for what we’ve been given here. We need to count those blessings that God has given us and thank Him. The high school principal, Stephen Clark, used events from his own life to encourage the group to always find their identity in Christ.
The seniors participated in a raffle in the dormitories while watching the sun rise, then closed the event with a group prayer. High School Academic & College Advising Principal Amy Rowe sees firsthand the pressure these students can feel as they finalize their fall plans. “They’re working hard on their college applications,” Rowe said. “We think it’s important to honor and celebrate their accomplishments and thought Senior Sunrise and Senior Sunset would be great bookends to start and end their Woodlands Christian journey.”
Woodlands Christian offers a rigorous academic program with faith built into the curriculum and extracurricular activities, providing students with college preparation starting in grade 8. They have seen unprecedented growth this year and are still accepting applications for fall 2022, but there are waiting lists in several tiers.
