5th-8th Grade Philosophy
The Athletic Program is available to all students in grades 5-8 who demonstrate an interest in participation. Every girl and boy will have the opportunity to participate in a team sports as well as individual sports. Accordingly, appropriate skill levels are established at each playing level within a specific sport, when feasible, so that students may participate as fully as possible. Our coaching staff strives to provide a positive self-image of all student-athletes, and ensure growth and development that will increase the number of athletes that are able to move on to the next competitive level with an emphasis on sportsmanship and teamwork. Our athletic department actively encourages student-athletes to pursue academic excellence, leadership skills, social responsibility, multi-cultural awareness, and physical fitness.
9th-12th Grade Philosophy
The St. Agnes Academy athletic philosophy is an outgrowth of our school's mission. The program emphasizes excellence, commitment, participation, and the cultivation of the whole person. St. Agnes athletes will grow as an individual while learning the values of teamwork, sportsmanship, responsibility, and dedication. The athletic department provides each student with a sense of belonging, while encouraging every athlete to achieve her personal best. St. Agnes teams play together, lose together, and win together, and coaches and athletes forge strong bonds of trust and friendship during a season. St. Agnes athletes should be proud of their athletic experience and take with them many positive memories and lasting friendships.
