“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career.  I’ve lost almost 300 games.  26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed.  I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life.  And that is why I succeed.”
- Michael Jordan

Rather than seek perfection, we teach students how to strive for excellence.  This often means taking a risk — falling short — and trying again.  Athletics is a natural environment to reinforce this concept.

Our students reflect a vast array of interests, skills, and abilities.  Students are encouraged to participate in athletics — both team and individual sports.  Besides our students, many faculty members are current (or former) athletes who serve as positive role models for the children.
