Life Center Academy's Images Theatre is an after-school program that has grown from a handful of students to a third of our upper school. Currently, we do one production a year. This flexibility allows for student athletes to be a part of theatre, whether as a performer, an usher, or a member of the technical team. The name "Images" comes from the late Mark Hallen, the former director of theatre at Eastern University. He used to tell his students to remember that the people we meet are walking wounded images of God: we don't know what wound they carry; therefore, we should treat each other kindly and with respect. This is what we try to encourage with Images Theatre.
Chic-fil- A Leader Academy teaches students leadership skills and gives the students opportunities to apply these skills throughout the school year. These young leaders will plan and implement "Impact Projects" that will benefit members of the community as the students make an "Impact through Action." Life Center Academy students involved in the Chic-Fil A Leader Academy begin the school year learning how to pack a single meal to feed a single person. But by the end of the program, students emerge as leaders positively influencing their communities.
The National Honor Society (NHS)and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) are the nation's premier organizations established to recognize outstanding high school and middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NHS and NJHS serve to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character (and Citizenship for NJHS). These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginnings in 1921 and 1929.Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in activities of the NHS and NJHS. NHS and NJHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. Territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
In the 2014-2015 school year, Life Center Academy petitioned the International Thespian Society, the student honorary division of the Educational Theatre Association, for the privilege of chartering a Thespian troupe. The theatre arts program of Life Center Academy met the standards required by the board of directors of the Educational Theatre Association, and the application was accepted; thereby including us with troupes from every state across the United States and troupes in Canada, Singapore, Ecuador, Dubai, China, Taiwan, and Qatar. Membership in this international organization is not only a reward for the fine work we have done, but further evidence of our desire to continue to work in this specialized field. As a troupe, our work will contribute to the growth of better theatre in this community, our country, and throughout the world. Students earn points to be inducted and to reach higher levels in the society by doing excellent work in various theatrical areas.
