Student involvement Opportunities

Associated Student Body: All enrolled students, together with all faculty members, are members of the ASB. This association is the general organization for the student body and is responsible for social, spiritual, and cultural activities.

Class Organizations: Class organizations provide leadership opportunities for students. Class officers are elected in the fall of each year. Officers and sponsors are responsible for planning class activities.

Community/Mission Service: In addition to local community service projects, each year during Spring Break students spend vacation time helping others. Mission service groups have traveled to places such as Africa, Arizona, Baja, California, Canada, Costa Rica, Honduras, Jamaica, Latvia, Mexico, and Peru building churches and schools. Through these opportunities each student can have the experience of serving God.

Music Groups: WWVA has several music groups suited to the varied musical interests of students. Among these groups are the Concert Band, Praise Ringers, String Orchestra, and Choir. These groups present programs for various church, civic, and school activities. There are weekend appointments with these groups.

Religious Activities: The goal is to provide every student the opportunity to be involved in some form of ministry. Students can participate in mission trips, local area church worships, programs for area nursing homes and retirement centers, and organized community outreach projects.

Sports Program: Students have the opportunity to participate in the school intramural program playing various sports. In addition, students can try out for the following varsity sports: girls volleyball, boys and girls varsity and junior varsity basketball, boys cross country, boys and girls track. We also offer soccer, baseball and golf. Students can also try-out for the AcroKnights acrobatics team, which performs at local schools as well as on trips throughout the Northwest. Good sportsmanship is expected and required of all participants and fans.

Publications: The Mugbook, a get-acquainted picture book of students and faculty, is published during the first month of the school year. The Delphian is WWVA’s yearbook and is issued during the last month of the school year. The Page is a weekly student-produced newspaper produced by the publications class. Each publication provides an important training opportunity for students who wish to develop journalistic and related skills. Fees for all publications are included in the financial package.

Drama: Students can enhance their theatrical skills and knowledge through plays and other dramatic opportunities. Ways to participate include performance, costumes, hair and make-up, set construction and design, backstage management, lighting, sound and other technical artistry.

WWVA Day: All prospective students and their parents are invited to visit WWVA on this visitation day (see our online calendar at wwva.org for date and information). There are tours, programs, and other activities planned to help acquaint visitors with the school. For more information please contact the marketing office.
