The Palmetto Scholars Academy Athletic Program should provide a variety of experiences to enhance the development of positive student habits and attitudes that will prepare them for the future.
Athletics should function as an integral part of the total curriculum. It should advance educational outcomes by promoting learning, citizenship, sportsmanship and life skills. Athletic participation also plays an important part in helping students develop a healthy self-concept as well as a healthy body. Athletic competition also improves school spirit and helps students develop pride in their school.
The major objective of the program is to provide wholesome opportunities for students to develop positive leadership habits and attitudes of social and group interaction.
The mission of the athletic department is to provide opportunities, support, and coaching that will assist in the overall development of student-athletes so that they may achieve academically while competing athletically at the highest level. We will operate with integrity and dedication as a focal point for school identity and spirit, while complementing the academic, cultural and social facets of life for the general student body, faculty and staff. We will teach and coach a high-character, servant-leadership focus through an “Athlete First, Winning Second” mentality as a means of their further development while creating a source of pride in the community for our school.
