Welcome to Athletics at the Academy!

We are excited to be able to provide additional opportunities for students to grow as thinkers, learners, and movers in an athletics setting. Here at the Academy, it is our goal to align our Triton's Athletic Program with our mission, vision, and values. Our school’s mission is to foster meaningful growth in intellectual character virtues in thoughtful, challenging, and supportive environment. We believe that athletics provide a unique opportunity for students to grow in their understanding and application of their intellectual character, combining physical activity with intellectual rigor. Our athletics model represents the culture of thinking and learning that is valued within the Academy community and has the possibly for growth overtime.

The Triton's Athletic Program mission is to create an environment in which student-athletes are challenged to focus on their individual growth as well as value the growth of others in a supportive team environment.

Although we are a small school, we participate in:

  • Cross Country– Fall
  • Basketball:– Winter
  • Volleyball - Spring
  • Soccer: Intramurals – Spring

 

We also rely on volunteer support in helping to create these meaningful opportunities for student-athletes. The following are typical volunteer opportunities needed for a sport season to run successfully:

  • Coaches
  • Transportation
  • Communication

 

Participation in athletics as a privilege for all students involved. Because we believe in the mission and vision of the Academy to foster meaningful growth to equip every student to think: creatively, critically and with the capacity for self-growth. It is important that participating athletes uphold themselves as students before they advance as athletes. When participating as a student-athlete, a minimum grade standard must be maintained during the season. The following grade standards are required for students to participate:

  • GPA of at least a 2.0
  • No more than one failing (NY) grade in all classes

 

In order to provide our Triton's Athletic Program year after year, each sport will charge a donation/participation fee.
