Our athletics program serves the mission of Whitefield Academy:
Our mission is to train students to be Christ-focused critical thinkers, clear communicators, and compassionate leaders in an environment of classical academic excellence.
The WA athletic philosophy believes that our primary purpose is to provide a Christ-honoring academic and athletic environment for learning by partnering with Whitefield teachers to extend what is being taught in the classroom. We accomplish our aim through providing a quality and positive experience for our athletes to extend what is happening in the classroom to the context of athletics, and to partner with parents to raise up wise and virtuous young men and women.
The following are key lessons learned through the athletic programs at Whitefield:
Conditioning – Our bodies belong to God (I Cor. 6:19-20). Athletic programs provide a fun way for students to work hard to keep their bodies in condition.
Competition – The apostle Paul compares the physical exertion of running a race to win with the spiritual race (I Cor. 9:24). Competition promotes the positive attributes of hard work, discipline and accomplishing a goal.
Cooperation – Working well with others is important in every area of life, whether it is family, work, or friends. Athletics promotes the concept of looking out for the interest of others ahead of your own (Phil. 2:4).
Character – Athletics teaches key lessons such as how to win well, and how to lose well. Having a good attitude when the call goes the wrong way, treating the opponents and officials with respect, not show-boating, not bragging, are all lessons to be learned, and attitudes to be expected (Col. 1:10).
Christ-Honoring – The goal of all that we do should be to learn to be more like Christ and to give Him glory (I Cor. 10:31).
