Keep Hoping

Spiritual Life Week 2021

For one week each year, we set aside a special time to intentionally focus on spiritual growth. Students attend daily chapels where they are challenged to draw near to Christ, to spend time in His Word, and to live out their mission as His disciples. Students also have opportunities to meet for worship and prayer in the mornings, dedicating the week to God. This year, the week’s theme was “Keep Hoping.” 

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess,
for he who promised is faithful.

Hebrews 10:23

Throughout the week, our entire senior class rotated through the FAC as an in-person audience, while the rest of the school watched on livestream. We are grateful to have the opportunity to give our seniors an in-person chapel experience during their final Spiritual Life Week at Wheaton Academy.

In addition to chapels, the chapel leadership team facilitated a morning “Worship Room” space where students could gather to pray before school. Payton ’21 shares, “Throughout the week I saw how much students loved and appreciated this time. Because we cannot all be in-person for chapel, it was really meaningful to spend this time in worship together!”

"Spiritual life week is a fantastic opportunity that Wheaton Academy gives to students. Being a part of the Project Lead Chapel team during Spiritual Life Week helped me realize the immense amount of care and love that Wheaton Academy has for students' walk with Jesus. I loved creating spaces for students to have personal reflection time in order to see what God is telling them throughout the week."

While Spiritual Life Week is a focused time for spiritual growth, Christ is at the center of what we do here every week of the year. Students encounter Jesus through chapel, classes rooted in a Biblical worldview, and a Christ-centered community of teachers and peers.
