The emphasis that we place on our athletic program is not the result of the adoration of sports for sports’ sake, but stems from the recognition that athletics is a means to an end. Participation in a team environment uniquely develops young people in ways that may not be accomplished by other means.
We desire to teach our athletes that biblical principles are applicable to all aspects of life including athletics. Discipline, perseverance, sportsmanship, self-sacrifice, and teamwork will be stressed. (2 Timothy 2:4-5)
Our athletes will be taught to play to win. Winning is not the most important thing, but our preparation, effort and attitude should prepare our students to always do their best.
Systematic athletic training was an important part of the classical educational tradition because athletics offered opportunities for moral and ethical training. The relationship between a strong mind and a strong body was also understood, something that modern studies have affirmed. At Covenant Classical School we continue this tradition and stand committed to giving its scholars the many opportunities that athletics provide for leadership, character development, and physical conditioning, to fulfill its mission and vision of creating moral and intellectual leaders.
