At Pioneer Academy participation in athletic programs is important, for it contributes to the total growth of students. Pioneer Academy requires all students to participate in the athletic program at a level consistent with their ability. Our rigorous program strives to teach students how to work well with one another, test themselves mentally and physically, and to exhibit sportsmanship and fair play. All athletic practices and games are considered school obligations.
In the fall term, all new students must be involved in a Team Sport. Although efforts will be made to assist each student in meeting their athletic requirement, there may be times when exceptions are necessary due to limited space or full rosters. These exceptions will be made at the discretion of the Athletic Director in consultation with the student’s advisor. In addition to developing students academically, Pioneer Academy also places an emphasis on developing students physically through positive interscholastic competition. Pioneer Academy’s athletic programs encourage students to develop healthy exercise habits, increase self-esteem, and stress the importance of sportsmanship while enjoying the challenges of competition.
