The athletic programs in the Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools are a vital part of the total educational program and an integral part of the extracurricular activities. Athletics affirm, promote, and model Catholic values and engage student athletes fully in mind, body and spirit. Through athletic participation, we strive to help our students accomplish the following goals:
Participation in athletics offers unique lessons and experiences that prepare students
for life in the community, workplace, and family. Students will participate in athletics
with the long-term goals of preparation for a life of faith and service to others.
God has bestowed skills, abilities, and talents upon each of us. Students will develop
known and unknown talents that promote confidence, self-discipline, leadership, and an appreciation of physical activity and healthy lifestyles choices.
The development of well-rounded, faith-centered individuals, as well as the safety and welfare of our student-athletes, is the primary focus of the athletic programs as the Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools. These programs compliment the academic and spiritual focus of the school and strive to assist students in reaching their full potential as witnesses to Christ’s teachings.

In order to participate in athletics, the Michigan High School Athletic Association requires that each student have an annually completed physical card on file in their school’s athletic office. Students may not participate in games or in practices without the form on file. The MHSAA also mandates the dates in which the physical forms are valid.
