A successful school recognizes that students are multi-faceted. Here at Pinewood Christian Academy we strive to develop the potential of our students in all areas, including the fine arts. One avenue of fine arts exploration is participation in One-Act Play which is a division of Literary.
A one act play is a play that takes place in one act or scene, as opposed to plays that take place over a number of acts. Students participate in a selection process where they audition for parts in the play. Whether a student is selected for a major or minor roll or as a member of the stage crew, each person is important to the success of the final product.
Before competing at the regional level, it has become a tradition at PCA to perform for the home crowd at an annual Dinner Theater. Then, cast and crew head to region competition and hopefully on to state competition. Students who participate in one-act gain confidence in public speaking, stage presence, and teamwork, all life skills that contributes to the self-worth of an individual.
For many years, PCA has competed in the GISA Literary Meet held annually in the spring. Competition is held in music, writing, and speaking. Categories include Boys’ and Girls’ Solo, Girls’ Trio, Boys’ Quartet, Piano, Humorous Oral Interpretation, Dramatic Oral Interpretation, U.S. Extemporaneous Speaking, International Extemporaneous Speaking, Spelling, Boys’ and Girls’ Argumentative Essay and Personal Essay. Pinewood has always finished as one of the leading schools at Region competition. Winners then proceed to State competition from which numerous state winners have emerged through the years.
To see the world impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes. The purpose of Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) is to challenge coaches, athletes, and all whom they influence to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ. Pinewood’s FCA is initiated and led by student athletes with a focus on serving fellow students and local communities to make a difference for Christ.
All 7th-12th grade students, regardless of athletic involvement, are invited and encouraged to attend FCA meetings and events.
