Mission and Philosophy

The philosophy of Saint Rose of Lima Catholic School’s athletic program is to contribute to the physical, mental, and social development of the student. This goal is to be obtained through physical education classes, extracurricular sports, sports days, and other interscholastic athletic activities. A proper balance between these activities should be maintained so that all students who want to participate are provided with opportunities. The program provides for the development of a student’s physical skills, social skills, and emotional stability. The young person is the key focus, not simply “winning.”
