At St. Paul Christian Academy, we offer our students opportunities to participate in basketball, cheerleading, cross country, football, golf, track & field, and volleyball. In recent years, we have had upwards of 70% participation for eligible students. Every student who wishes to participate in a particular sport will be given an opportunity.
Athletics teaches lessons and values that transcend the playing fields and courts. We believe competition is healthy and our coaches challenge our athletes at a developmentally appropriate level, stressing the importance of resilience, effort, attitude, teamwork, and sportsmanship to glorify God.
Participating in athletics is one way that students experience the three pillars of St. Paul as they strive for excellence, learn to lead, and play in a way that demonstrates their passion for Christ.
At St. Paul Christian Academy, we believe that it is our responsibility to help prepare our student-athletes for their middle and high school careers. We want to see each athlete improve and succeed as an individual but not at the expense of the overall team. Our student-athletes understand that they are held to a higher standard than their peers and that their actions are direct reflections of their team, their school, their families and themselves.
We hope to set a positive example for the greater Nashville community by how we practice, how we play, how we win, and how we lose.
