In many Christian schools, it is hard to find a good balance practiced between athletics and academics.
Many could be considered at the “minimalist” end of the spectrum – placing no importance in sport, and hosting no programs for the students.
Others are “maximalists” – where almost the entire identity of the school is wrapped up in the performance and ultimate success of these extra-curricular activities, with near-unlimited funds available for the programs to the detriment of education.
Holy Family Academy strives to strike a balance between the two, recognizing that in our efforts to form a complete student, “a whole man,” athletics plays an important role. It is subservient to – yet still a part of -the full picture of a healthy student, where physical health and competition must support the spiritual and academic health that we strive to nourish in each boy and girl in our academy.
