Catholic elementary schools are 'A place where imagination takes root and flourishes.'

Competitive Sports Programs

Catholic elementary schools have a focus on educating the ‘whole child’, in mind, in body, and in spirit. We understand that many positive aspects of life are reflected in sports and activities. We use sports and activities to aid in student’s physical development, but also as part of their socialization. Sports programs teach students the value of teamwork and instill a competitive nature. Sports programs are important parts of assuring the understanding of fair play and sportsmanship.

During the formative years that students are with us they progress rapidly from the socialization activities in Early Education, to the intermural sports and gym program for elementary students and ultimately as part of interscholastic CMSAA (Catholic Middle School Athletic Association) competition.
