HCS Athletics Mission Statement

At Highlands Christian Schools we are committed to instilling a high standard of excellence through our athletic program.

Excellence will be evident in our student-athletes’ character and will enrich campus life and our community. In the pursuit of this high standard of excellence our goals are:


  • To foster an atmosphere of fun and sense of commitment and responsibility in our student-athlete when participating in inter-scholastic athletics;
  • To produce in the student-athlete a sense of unselfishness and cooperation in order to reach team goals;
  • To instill in the student-athlete an appreciation and respect towards his/her teammates, coaches, opponents, and officials;
  • To promote a healthy lifestyle through good health, physical fitness and abstention from activities that limit a student-athlete’s potential;
  • To encourage in the student-athlete a sense of unyielding effort towards individual academic achievement;
  • To mold in the student-athlete a sense of pride for the school among students, staff, alumni and parents;
  • To nurture in the student-athlete leadership qualities that strengthen their ethics and faith while developing a mature Christian attitude.
