West Highland Christian Academy has five robotics teams:
  • Mechatronic Mustangs #7225 - FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC)
  • WHCA Lightning Colts #14109 - FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC)
  • WHCA Mighty Mustangs #37215 - FIRST Lego League Challenge (FLL)
  • Epic Explorers #13992 - FIRST Lego League Explore (FLL)
  • Otter Squad #14414 - FIRST Lego League Explore (FLL)

WHCA began our robotics program late in 2017. With very little experience and even less time, our high school team successfully built a fully-functioning and winning robot within six weeks. Between competitions, we continued to expand our bot's capabilities. At our very first district competition, we ranked 7th out of 38 and won the 2018 Highest Rookie Seed Award. We also won the 2018 Rookie Inspiration Award. At our next district event, we again won the 2018 Highest Rookie Seed Award and the 2018 Rookie All-Star Award. We qualified for and competed in the 2018 state competition and in the 2018 worlds competition in Detroit.


West Highland Christian Academy is a member of FIRST®.
