The Warrior Mindset

Our 3 Core Values

COMPETITION at the highest level

“Run in such a way as to get the prize: (1 Cor.  9:24-27). We strive for excellence during training and competition, playing fairly and fiercely, with a championship mentality. Striving to do our very best, no matter the outcome, is glorifying to God and training for effort everywhere in life.

COMMITMENT to one another

“Encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing” (1 Thess. 5:11). Our teams have a strong sense of camaraderie and togetherness. They culture a positive environment through hard work and a teachable spirit.

CHRISTLIKENESS in our character and conduct

“Walk in a manner worthy of your calling” (Phil. 1:27). Our student athletes and performers are held to a high standard as role models representing the school. They develop leadership skills through perseverance, accountability, respect, self-control and humility.
