Athletics

The Montgomery Academy Athletic Department is proud of the excellence exhibited by its student-athletes in the classroom and in competition. The "pursuit of excellence" that permeates our school community enables our students-athletes to achieve self-satisfaction and fulfillment, which ultimately enhance the educational experience. The Athletic Department is committed to providing an environment conducive to the development of well-rounded individuals. This commitment enables our athletic philosophy, balancing the pursuit of academic and athletic excellence simultaneously, to become a reality.

One principle value of athletics is the realization that life is reflected in sports. Being prepared, maintaining a positive attitude, being dedicated to a common cause and establishing high standards of sportsmanship facilitate success. I am convinced that principles learned through active participation in athletics will enrich our student-athletes' decision making, as well as their roles in society.

Our program objectives are to see that the highest standards of athletic competition are maintained throughout the program while ensuring that our primary responsibility is to the student-athletes. Montgomery Academy athletic teams consistently achieve conference, area, regional and state titles. We are fortunate to have a longstanding tradition of athletic excellence with outstanding coaches and student-athletes. We will strive to provide an opportunity for the complete development of the student-athlete: personally, academically, and athletically.
