The Maryknoll School Interscholastic Athletic Program is a natural extension of the school curriculum that provides activities for the growth and development of our student scholar athletes. The program includes experiences in human relations, as well as opportunities for developing each student scholar athlete physically and emotionally, spiritually and academically. We view the Interscholastic Athletic Program as the other half of education.
At Maryknoll School, we believe that the Interscholastic Athletic Program contributes significantly to preparing our student scholar athletes for becoming productive, contributing citizens of our community and society. A comprehensive program of athletic activities expresses our commitment to ensure the development of physical fitness and personal health, the acquisition of competent performances, and the achievement of excellence in the student scholar athlete’s chosen sport.
In addition, our aim is to develop a student scholar athlete with an improved self-image, the ability to learn a new skill, and an intrinsic motivation for growth and development. We want to see a student scholar athlete who will demonstrate a willingness to accept responsibility for his/her actions, measure him/herself against standards of quality, express ideas and solutions to problems, and value fair play, honesty and cooperation.
