School spirit is imperative to a school's growth, which is why the Arkansas Christian Academy cheer team is committed to building and encouraging students, parents, and fans to show their love for ACA. The Arkansas Christian Cheer Team consists of high school girls. They cheer on the Knights in football and basketball games while also encouraging crowd involvement. The cheer team helps build excitement within the student body that will overflow into the community. One of the great avenues of building school spirit is hosting school-wide Pep Rallies. Prior to and during these events, the cheer team organizes games for each grade, involves the staff, promotes a school spirit stick competition between senior high grades, incorporates the band, and encourages the athletes in their pursuit of victory.
The cheer team is most notable for bringing a higher level of energy to both home and away games. Their presence and excitement creates a fun, competitive, and friendly environment for the fans and players!
