The purpose of our athletic program is to complement, not compete, with our academic program. We reject as a false dichotomy the idea that either the academic must serve athletics or vice versa. Our goals and vision statement state the educational mission of our school, and we seek to use both academics and athletics as instruments to help us accomplish those goals.

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 artificially to 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.
