Athletics

Football Player

Athletics is an amazing way for our students to learn. From the thrill of victory to the agony of defeat, the lessons taught by sports make our kids more resilient, collaborative and healthy. The field, track, gym and weight room offer daily opportunities for kids to learn 21st century skills, which makes them better students in the classroom and more prepared for whichever college or career they choose in the future. Student-athletes are students first. Participation in sports is a privilege. We expect all of our student-athletes to abide by the academic and athletic rules set by their schools and the organizations we are affiliated with.
