Students have many opportunities to participate on an athletic team at AACS. We consider the experience to be invaluable. Our coaches and student-athletes are expected to do their best at all times in the true spirit of Christ-centered competition. While winning games and championships are certainly worthy goals, those things do not define our purpose at AACS. Success for teams will not be measured by the number of games or championships we win. Our success will be measured by how much we grow as teams and as individuals, and how well we represent Christ. The coaches purpose is to develop young Christian men and women of character and faith. We take the following Bible verses very seriously at AACS.
Proverbs 27: ‘As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.’
1 Corinthians 9:24: ‘Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.’
We believe that competition not only builds character, but it also reveals character. We intend to glorify God in all we do, both in and out of competition, through the good times and not so good times, using teachable moments to help sharpen the faith of our student-athletes. Our goal is to equip our student-athletes with a strong sense of faith and a close connection with Jesus Christ so that our boys and girls will become men and women of empathy and integrity, who will lead, be responsible and help change the world for good.
