The Academy believes that a student who experiences a healthy mix of academics, athletics, and extracurricular activities throughout her educational career will be in a better position to be a leader in the world.
By striving to succeed on the playing field, students cultivate life-long skills. The student athlete is better at managing her time, and is a more accountable member of society having had experiences as a team player. We believe that a student athlete learns to win with class, and accept defeat with grace.
The sense of camaraderie and teamwork here is outstanding, and is a product of our school’s philosophy.
