The Village Academy Athletic Program enhances the academic experience by offering opportunities to develop important life skills such as leadership, dedication, integrity, and teamwork.
The physical education program, team practices, and organized competition provide opportunities for individual growth in an educational, supportive, and challenging environment. Physical education begins at the pre-kindergarten level and during Lower School, students are able to explore participation in team sports, workshops and specials which help them to choose their preferences in middle and upper school activities.
Through participation in the athletics program, student athletes learn about the importance of health and fitness, good sportsmanship, and proper conduct. Sports teams have opportunities to participate in regional, state, and national competitions starting in Middle School, which prepare students for Upper School and collegiate athletic competition.
The Village Academy Athletic Program provides a competitive, supportive environment, where each student athlete is treated as a valuable member of the team and is recognized for his or her athletic achievements. All Middle and Upper School students are offered a variety of opportunities to participate in athletics for the School.
