Athletic Participation Creates Healthy Students
We understand the importance of collaboration, dedication and fitness. Here students are educated through athletics. Faculty and staff coach nearly every sports team, which creates stronger relationships, memorable experiences and builds trust. Character values, actively taught in the classroom and field, are cultivated in athletic participation as well.
