Our mission is to serve as a positive force in the education of young people, with the ultimate purpose of creating successful students. The education-focused mission of school athletics is significantly different from the entertainment-oriented objectives of professional and college sports. The guiding principles of school sports programs should be to develop the qualities of sportsmanship, integrity, respect for others, teamwork, leadership, aspiration, work ethic, personal accountability, physical fitness, and a healthy lifestyle within all student athletes.
The pursuit of victory is important, but only to the extent that winning contributes to these higher, character building goals of sport. Participating in and/or attending school athletic events is a privilege dependent on sportsmanlike conduct.
Our Athletic Department has produced stellar athletes in all sports. You will see many of our graduates playing for some of the best colleges in the United States.
