 ATHLETIC PHILOSOPHY AND ACADEMICS
Our academic and athletic programs are not structured to be in competition with one another. We reject as a false dichotomy the idea that either the academics must serve athletics or vice versa. Our Goals and Vision Statements state the educational mission of our school, and we seek to use both academics and athletics as instruments to help us accomplish those goals.


If any element of our program begins to threaten our ability to fulfill our Educational Goals or Vision Statement, then that element will be altered or eliminated in order to deal with the threat.


Our athletic and physical education activities are considered an important component of our classical and Christian curriculum. We recognize that the training of the body has been part of the classical approach to education from the very beginning. Further, our understanding of the Christian worldview does not permit us to artificially limit a course of training to the mind only. Our goal has always been to educate our students in all aspects of life, with the Scriptures at the center of all things as the point of integration. We have the same standard for our athletic program and physical education classes and see this point of integration as particularly important.
