From the very beginning, athletics have played an important role at Columbus Academy. From the school's first official team – a 12-member baseball squad in the spring of 1912 – to today, our student-athletes compete in maroon and gray representing Academy’s ideals of growing healthy bodies as well as healthy minds. Every day, our Vikings are encouraged to push themselves, play their best and support others, knowing that the benefits of physical wellness and the lessons of sport extend far beyond any classroom and any field of play.

Athletics Philosophy

Upper School

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.

Middle School

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 effect 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.
