The Atlanta Academy’s athletic program is an integral part of our students’ educational experience. Being part of a team teaches our students crucial skills such as cooperation, collaboration, leadership, and patience. Students are encouraged to participate in the athletics program not only to improve performance but to promote character and school spirit.
The athletic program at The Atlanta Academy is available throughout the school year for students in the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grades. An intramural program, golf clinic and tennis clinic are available for our younger gladiators.
Some of the most important attributes for being a GLADIATOR athlete include displaying outstanding sportsmanship, being a team player, having an outstanding work ethic and being a responsible student athlete. Leadership and respected by their faculty/peers are also important qualities.
In addition, the expectation of acquiring the basic fundamentals of the sport are critical. One of the many benefits playing sports is being prepared to be a successful, diligent and good role model for our younger students. Achieving this high level of goals will result in a positive middle school experience.
