Collegiate athletics are an integral part of school life. Athletics are integral to a comprehensive educational program and can contribute substantially to the learning experience of all students. Each student who elects to participate in a sport will be encouraged to develop his skills to the greatest extent possible, regardless of his beginning
skills or abilities.
Character development is enhanced through participation in sports as student athletes develop a strong work ethic, integrity, and preparedness while experiencing school pride and joy. Collegiate athletics provides experiences which are designed to fit harmoniously into the overall educational program, where students learn to put the team before individual achievement.
Our Athletics Department believes that students learn best when they are a member of a diverse and just community that fosters purposeful and spirited engagement, inquiry, and collaboration in athletics.
We believe that student-athletes will be successful by doing their best and their best will lead to improvement throughout their playing days and beyond.
