The mission of the West Carteret Athletic Program is to provide wholesome opportunities for students to develop positive leadership habits and attitudes of social and group interaction.
Coaching leadership will be of the highest quality and should provide athletes with examples of exemplary behavior. Measurement of leadership success will not be measured in terms of tangible evidence of victories and defeats. Instead character, courage, and integrity will be the major objectives of the athletic program.
Patriot Athletics will always be consistent with the general objectives of West Carteret High School. The athletic administration will be oriented to the general policies of Carteret County Public Schools and West Carteret High School. At no time should the program place the total educational curriculum secondary in emphasis; program leaders will constantly strive for the development of well-rounded individuals, capable of taking their place in modern society.
West Carteret High School is a member of the Coastal 3A Conference.
