Prom Tips for Impact Christian Academy Students

Prom Tips for Impact Christian Academy Students

It is almost prom night for Impact Christian Academy! Prom is an exciting time for our juniors and seniors, but it can quickly become a stressful time. Here are some tips to make prom and the time leading up to it as enjoyable (and stress-free) as possible for Impact Christian families and students!

Time management

Plan to avoid rushing at the last moment. Encourage your students to have all the pieces of their outfits ready ahead of time. If they can try on the clothes early, it will help ensure they feel comfortable and confident in their chosen attire. And if your student is getting anyone a corsage, the best way to get it is to order in advance and pick it up early on prom day. Consider making a checklist with your student to help ensure nothing gets forgotten in the whirlwind of prom preparations.


The most fun part of prom is making magical memories with friends. Prom night is a time to laugh, dance, take lots of photos, and most importantly, make memories that will last a lifetime. Students, make sure your friends have a plan for getting ready beforehand, enough time to take photos and know how you will get to prom.

What to wear 

Deciding on what to wear for prom can seem like a huge undertaking! Especially for Christian students attending prom, it is important to feel good about what you decide to wear, and one major part of that is dressing in a way that honors God. When in doubt, remember that you will always look perfect because, at the end of the day, He made you perfect!


It can seem like a lot to consider prom attire and styling, coordinate plans with a group, and focus on having a great time. When worry and stress come knocking, keep Isaiah 41:10 in mind and remember there is no need to worry because He is always with us.

Have fun!


As students near the end of the school year, they deserve to enjoy the moment! Remember one of ICA’s core values—We are joyful! This is a fun, joyful occasion to celebrate with peers and the ICA community. The most important part of prom is celebrating and having a great time!  

Easter Ideas for Families

Easter Ideas for Families

Easter ideas for families

Easter is around the corner! As a Christian school, Impact Christian Academy is already focused on Easter, but it is also important to take that conversation home. As we get closer Easter, parents and families may be wondering how to incorporate the lessons that Easter season provides into their students’ lives.

Here are some Easter ideas for families to help get your child more engaged in this important holiday.

Get Creative

Try some crafts! Decorating eggs is a staple Easter craft that can be as elaborate or simple as families want to get. If your family has traditional Easter dishes, try sharing those recipes with the children, or maybe even starting some new food traditions with them. Another crafty option for kids and families to spread the message of Easter is by creating greeting cards to share with family, friends, and neighbors!

Reflect on the Days of the Passion Week

Reflect on the events of Passion Week with your student. ICA will be having themed days as we reflect on the Jesus’ final week. Get scholars engaged with the themed days and use that to start talking about what Jesus Christ went through on each of those, and what lessons we can gather from it.

Get Involved in Activities

Easter activities can give parents a fun opportunity to talk about the themes of Easter. Easter egg hunts offer a chance to talk about symbols of Easter, like how the egg symbolizes new life and rebirth, which represents Jesus’ resurrection.

Impact families can get involved with activities like the Egg Hunt presented by Impact Kids on Saturday, April 1st starting at 11:30 a.m. at Ed Austin Park. ICA is also putting on our Passion Week Carnival for students to enjoy and for families to get involved with on Thursday April 6th!

For Lower School Students

It can be a challenge to discuss the end of Jesus’ life and His resurrection with younger ones, considering little ones may be more sensitive to themes of what Jesus endured.  It may be helpful to use John 3:16 as a simplified guide. By focusing on God’s love for us, parents can set the foundation of the conversation and add more details as that child is prepared to know more.

Middle School and Upper School Students

Easter season is a time to reflect on how much Jesus Christ gave for us, and it is a perfect time to think about how we can give and serve others. To highlight the ICA principle of Altruism, challenge your student to find new ways of being of service. Students can volunteer their time and talents at soup kitchens, local hospitals, animal shelters, or by gathering donations for a worthy cause of their choosing.

How ever families choose to spend Easter this season, we hope that everyone has a blessed, very happy Easter!

Making This School Year the Best One Yet

Making This School Year the Best One Yet

August is officially upon us, and that means it’s time to break out the pencils, notebooks, and calculators. With school back in session, this exciting time is full of new possibilities for students. A new school year means new teachers, new friends, connections, and challenges. For many students, a new year also marks a pivotal time, starting middle school, high school, or senior year—no matter what grade, going back to school is an exciting time.

Impact Christian Academy strives for every student to have a successful school year. Here are some ways to make this school year one of the best yet!

Get Prepared

The transition from summer to school can be challenging for many students; that’s why it is essential to set the tone right. Prepare for the year by going back to school shopping for fun school supplies. Stock up on all materials your scholar may need for the year, and even allow your student to pick out items that will enable them to express themselves. Students feel more confident in their ability to perform in the classroom when they arrive at school with a backpack full of papers, pens, pencils, and art supplies. Having access to supplies also enables creativity and promotes organization.

Get Involved

School doesn’t have to be all work and no play. One way to make this school year fun is by participating in extra-curricular activities. From sports, arts, culinary, and music, getting involved in extra-curricular activities can help students find their passions and grow their skills and identity. These activities can also help students make new friends, improve social skills, gain leadership skills and develop positive habits. In addition, extra-curricular activities teach students lessons they cannot learn in the classroom while they bond with their peers and have fun.

Make Time for Fun

Being a student can be demanding, especially balancing school, extra-curricular activities, and work. While all these activities are important, it is also crucial to carve out time to have fun. Take a break from all the work and schedule time with friends or family, engage in hobbies, exercise, plan a trip, or even chill out. Physical and emotional health play a significant role in one’s academic and personal success. Students who take time to themselves and engage in activities that make them happy will help them feel more energized and motivated throughout the week.

Be Positive

There is no denying that saying goodbye to summer is hard, but it doesn’t have to be sad! It is important to remember that getting an education, while challenging, positively improves lives and sets students up for success. Positive thinking is a powerful tool, and having an upbeat attitude can go a long way. Having a positive attitude increases the chances of better academic performance. Focus on the positives, don’t dwell on the negatives, practice gratitude, and be proud of even the most minor accomplishments. Remember that getting an education is wonderful, no matter how tough it gets!

Keep Your Child School-Ready Through Summer

Keep Your Child School-Ready Through Summer

While we always support taking well-deserved breaks and time for R & R, we also think it’s important to keep your children’s brains sharp. After all, we don’t want any summer setbacks or brain drains to occur after all the hard work their growing minds put in during the previous school year! To prevent your little ones’ brains from turning into complete pool noodles over the next few months, here are our 4 tips on how to have a fun, but still mentally stimulating summer break.

1.       Summer Camp but Make it Cool

There are so many options nowadays for summer camp programs, there is sure to be one for something your child is interested in! They range in topics from art, to science, robotics, photography, and more! Even a local YMCA summer camp will keep your child’s social skills up to par. Plus, it’s the perfect chance for children to experiment with trying a new hobby or interest thanks to short-term session commitments.

2.       Take a Tech Break

Despite digital learning being all the rage lately, it can be nice to give your eyes a break from all of the blue light a screen gives off. Go back to “old-school” activities that still incorporate numerical skills like board games and card games – your children won’t even notice they are working on counting, strategy, and money values!

3.       Train Your New Sous Chef

Getting your child excited about helping you out in the kitchen is a win-win for all! Not only are you teaching them critical life skills that will help them adapt to becoming an adult and caring for themselves, but this will also engage their motor skills and measuring skills by trying to follow a recipe closely. While it may make a mess in the beginning, you’ll be able to reap the awards of watching your child have fun and improve their fractions at the same time.

4.       Make Reading Fun

Reading capabilities and comprehension skills are some of the most common skills that tend to drop off the most during summer break. The solution? Reading for even as little as 10 to 15 minutes a day can keep your child’s synapses firing away while improving their vocabulary, creativity, and comprehensive skills. If your child is reluctant, try either reading to them, alternating passages while reading together, setting a book goal, or even reading your own book while seated next to them can help.

Plus, if they try any of the activities above, there’s reading snuck into several of them – reading game instructions, recipes, and more!



Since we can’t see our lovely scholars throughout summer, we hope these tips help you keep them on track to jump right back in come the Fall semester!
