Viking Athletics

Columbus Academy has won 31 team state championships in nine different sports
, including 10 state titles in field hockey and four in boys track & field.


The purpose of the Upper School interscholastic athletic program at Columbus Academy is threefold:

  1. To provide those students with an interest in athletics the opportunity to use and develop their athletic talent while participating in competitive contests under the direction of qualified and dedicated coaches. Additionally, we strive to continue to develop the ideas and habits of good health, fair play, initiative, achievement and emotional control.
  2. To provide for our students leadership opportunities and cooperative learning experiences which contribute to team building.
  3. To provide for our student body a solid foundation for the development of good school morals, for being sportsmanlike, and for exercising the qualities of fair play and courtesy.

Columbus Academy's Middle School interscholastic athletic program is designed to meet the developmental needs of all student-athlete participants by developing skills, promoting sportsmanship and teamwork, and fostering a love of sports. Participation is the cornerstone of Middle School athletics. The school recognizes that the goal is to provide the student-athlete as much playing time as possible. Various factors are taken into account that may affect playing time; most important of these factors are the student's commitment, attitude and effort. The school recognizes that it is not always possible for every child to play in every game; however, participation during the course of the season is the goal.

Columbus Academy Athletics Mascot

Vikings LogoIn 1932, Columbus Academy's students voted for the nickname Vikings over Panthers, Grey Wolves and other suggested options. Academy teams had been known only as the Maroon and Gray until that point. During the summer of 2009, Academy unveiled a new set of school logos that included a Viking helmet mark (access print-quality size by clicking here) and a CA monogram within a shield (access print-quality size by clicking here) that were designed primarily for athletic purposes.

In most sports, Columbus Academy competes in the Mid-State League Ohio (MSL-Ohio) Division.
