Welcome Back, Warriors! Welcome to the 2012-2013 school year! We are looking forward to an outstanding year of learning and growing at Woodlands Christian. Our theme this year is grateful, and the verse we have chosen is Psalm 100:4-5 -Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. We are indeed grateful to God for each and every one of our students, their families, our outstanding faculty, and for all of the many blessings He has bestowed upon The Woodlands Christian Academy.
