Athletics play an important part in a well-rounded education for many students. This is yet another avenue for students to apply what they are learning in the classroom setting in a practical way, as they learn to work together as a team and compete in Christ-like way with students from other schools in athletic competition.

Athletic competition formally begins at CCA in the 5th grade, with a “5th-6th grade” program. They play in a 5th/6th grade league similar to the middle school league with teams like Classical, Sunrise, Collegiate, etc. They practice on Wednesdays and play games on Saturdays. Beginning in the 7th grade, students may try out for one of our athletic team rosters, including boys and girls basketball, soccer, cross country, track and field, girls volleyball and cheerleading. CCA is a member of the KCAA conference. We also offer club football through the Junior Knights program.

While the goal of our athletic programs is not geared primarily toward winning, we do desire to do everything with excellence and to challenge students to “do their best.” All students who try out for a team and are academically and behaviorally eligible will be placed on a team (“A”or “B”) and given the opportunity to participate, as long as a school-approved coach is available to work with that team.
