Philosophy

The Athletic Department at Mount Royal Academy views athletics as an opportunity for students to carry the love of Christ into yet another part of their developmental and educational experience. While the ultimate goal of athletic competition is commonly conceived as knowing victory, we stress the importance of cultivating crucial virtues that will assist students within and outside of athletics. Thriving athletic traditions are founded upon the concepts of charity, honesty, humility, meekness, moderation, purity, and good sportsmanship. Coaches, athletes, and parents alike must strive to ensure that the athletic teams at Mount Royal behave in a manner that is conducive to allowing the love of Christ to permeate the bodies and souls of the wider community.
