Upper School Athletics

The purpose of the upper school interscholastic athletic program at Columbus Academy is threefold:

  • 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.
  • To provide for our students leadership opportunities and cooperative learning experiences which contribute to team building.
  • To provide for the community tangible displays of joy, conviction, enthusiasm and development in every aspect – including being gracious competitors – of the school’s core values: respect, responsibility, honesty, compassion, fairness, integrity and moral courage.

Middle School Athletics

The purpose of the 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.

Youth Sports

Starting in second grade, the purpose of our Junior Vikings youth sports programs at Columbus Academy is to positively develop our students by exposing them to a variety of sports. Participation, character development and fun are all key factors in our youth sports offerings. Providing opportunities for growth through sport and a welcoming environment where children feel they are learning how to be involved in their community are important in creating an exceptional experience for our students.
