The Woodlands Christian Academy Interact Club
The Woodlands Christian Academy Interact Club is one of the five area high school clubs sponsored by The Rotary Club of The Woodlands, which provides support and guidance to these self-governing and self-supporting clubs.
The Interact Club of The Woodlands Christian Academy is sponsored by The Rotary Club of The Woodlands. Each year, Interact clubs complete at least two community service projects. Through these efforts, members develop a network of friendships with local and overseas clubs and learn the importance of developing leadership skills and personal integrity, demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others, understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work.
