MISSION STATEMENT FOR HALIFAX ACADEMY ATHLETICS
Halifax Academy endeavors to provide a program of high school athletics from which participating students can derive all the benefits that participation in competitive sport offers. The goal of our high school athletic program is the same as that of the school’s academic program: excellence. In this context, excellence includes commitment to the physical and emotional well-being, and social development of student-athletes as well as to the development of their sense of citizenship, dedication to sportsmanship and fair play, the development of individual and team skills, the exertion of best effort, the will to win, and general conduct that brings credit to Halifax Academy and is a source of pride and enthusiasm for all members of the school and local community.
The measure of “excellence” when applied to Halifax Academy athletics means also a level of performance that frequently will produce winning seasons and the realistic opportunity to compete for team or individual championships. It requires that students engaged in athletics be students first, that they be admitted according to this criterion and that they progress satisfactorily towards a high school diploma.
The mission of the athletics program, ultimately, is that of Halifax Academy itself: “To build character and self-worth, give our students a sense of belonging and pride, and teach the importance of teamwork and dedication”
