Culture & Traditions

Culture

Teachers

At Wilberforce, we attract and train teachers who are gifted, called, and committed to the Wilberforce mission.

Family

We recognize parents as a child’s first and best teachers who nurture a school community that unites like-minded parents. Additionally, Wilberforce values family time, and incorporates breaks in the school calendar to foster and encourage this.

Statement of Faith

We seek to articulate and live by a shared Christian conviction.

Chapel

Chapel is a time to foster devotion through music, testimonies, reading and teaching from Scripture. Chapel is open to families every week. It is an important part of our week and culture.

Discipline

Discipline cultivates godly character through the building of habits of kindness, attentiveness, diligence, obedience, and respect.

“Teach me, O LORD, to follow your decrees; then I will keep them to the end. Give me understanding, and I will keep your law and obey it with all my heart. Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight. Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain. Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word.”
- Psalm 119:33-37

Attire

Students wear uniforms to instill an attentiveness and respect towards studies, and to forge a distinctive school identity.

Extracurriculars

  • After-School Clubs - We have many ways to get involved.
  • School Musical - In 2016 Wilberforce performed "Into the Woods Jr." Our 2017 production is "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat"!
  • Athletics - We have many sports to choose from throughout the year, and encourage students to be part of a team.

Traditions

Convocation

We begin our school year with a dedication service, where we present ourselves to God for His work at The Wilberforce School.

GrandFriends' Day

Grandparents and friends are key cheerleaders in a child's life. We celebrate these important people with this day of student recitation and reception. Students also display their projects, giving a prepared speech to share.

Lessons & Carols

A special chapel in December, this traditional form of readings and carols is our Christmas Program. Students read and recite scriptures. Parents and friends are invited.


Wilberforce Day

In February, we remember our namesake, William Wilberforce, with a special chapel and guest speaker(s), songs, and prayers.

Reading Rally

At Wilberforce, we honor classical literature and the delight in great books. February is Reading Rally Month. Students commit to reading a certain number of minutes each week during the month. Donors will financially sponsor students to reach their reading goals. Donations are used to build our school library. Reading Rally culminates with a "Dress Like a Book Character Day."

Fine Arts Day

Fine Arts Day and Evening of the Arts are celebrations of student achievements in the fine arts. Students invite friends, family, and neighbors to view student art and to hear them perform in music, speech, drama and forensics. Students display their service-oriented third trimester projects.
