Athletics

Cheerleading                Basketball             Cross Country               Tennis

At Christ Classical Academy we believe that a comprehensive classical education should also encompass athletics.  Athletics should not be seen as an “extra” or “add-on” to education, but as part of the educational program as a whole.  In Ancient Greece, educators also trained their students in order to maintain physical fitness and to master various skills.  In medieval Europe, entire villages often competed against one another in an array of physical challenges and team competitions.  Throughout the ages, athletics has provided participants with a great opportunity for community and fellowship, as well as a demonstration of their God-given talents.  To provide that well-rounded educational experience we have developed an athletics program that we look forward to growing as our school expands.  As we expand our athletics program we anticipate these activities will enhance the Christ Classical Academy student body, while providing students and parents with an opportunity to express positive school spirit.

Philosophy

We believe that our purpose as a school is not only to train the hearts and minds of our students but also the body.  We strive to have our students understand that the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, at the core of our athletic program is a desire to see each student put into practice the teachings of Paul:

19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.  – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Students who are involved in athletics will learn the core values of Teamwork, Integrity, Ministry, and Excellence and have the opportunity to put those values into practice.  They will also learn the importance of hard work, dedication, and losing graciously; all while glorifying God.   We look forward to watching our athletes, as well as coaches, parents, and spectators, share their faith with others through their sportsmanship and competition.

 Core Values (T.I.M.E.):

Teamwork:

3 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. 4 Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. –Philippians 2:3-4

Integrity:

3 The integrity of the upright will guide them, But the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them. –Proverbs 11:3

Ministry:

12 Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. –1 Timothy 4:12

Excellence:

23 And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. – Colossians 3:23-24
