Leaders On the Field

Hockey State Champs 2011Athletic participation is an integral part of the educational process and presents students with numerous opportunities for growth, leadership, friendship and peer support.

Our students are encouraged to play at the college level. We regularly schedule parent meetings with college athletic recruiting experts to aid in this process. Our guidance department uses software to facilitate NCAA compliance in course offerings.
