Philosophy

The Athletic Program at Saint Paul’s offers student athletes the opportunity for holistic development. Participating in athletics affords valuable life lessons that contribute to the social and emotional growth of the student and fosters elemental qualities of respect, honesty, compassion, hard work, and commitment. We believe athletics acts as a conduit to enhance a student’s self efficacy and service to others, helping to equip the student for lifelong success. Students at Saint Paul’s embrace the journey of learning, effort, and empathy for others.

Saint Paul’s athletics truly mirror the most valuable qualities of our community, encouraging students to take the leap into a new sport or sharpen their skills in a familiar one, all with the support of their coaches and fellow athletes. For this reason, Saint Paul’s is proud to boast an over 80% participation rate among our 5th-8th grade students in athletics.

Objectives of Participation:

Work for Good

At Saint Paul’s we need to remind ourselves that it is not merely our responsibility to avoid difficult or challenging circumstances, but to do all in our power to meet challenges while leading, inspiring, and motivating ourselves and others to positive change.

Accept the Need for Development

The Saint Paul’s athlete recognizes there is always room for growth. Success cannot survive stagnation nor excellence complacency. For that reason, feedback is welcomed and designed to prosper the athlete and encourage the team.

Live and Grow Together

Athletics offer the opportunity to discover our limitations and overcome adversity, together, as a team.  In addition, athletics help build self confidence and empower students to act with equity and equality for all persons.
