Athletics are an integral part of the educational program at SCIS and are conducted on a level consistent with other educational programs in the school. We have a proud tradition of winning that our championship banners hanging in the gyms can attest to. More importantly, though, we take pride in ensuring our athletics are done the right way—a way that builds character and leads to a better life.

At SCIS, our aim is to provide enjoyable and safe athletic opportunities to students. SCIS will provide equal opportunity to all students regardless of ability, gender, ethnic background or age in a cooperative, friendly, and enjoyable environment between all participating students. Students will be encouraged towards a healthy social and physical lifestyle through participation in sport in a non-threatening environment. A primary goal of our athletic program is to instill in spectators, as well as participants, the principles of good sportsmanship, self-control and fair play, which transcends winning or losing.

“The biggest part of being signed as a college athlete at North Park University in Chicago (an NCAA Division III college in the United States), representing SCIS is being able to really put the school on the map. I really wanted to give back to a community where I’ve been provided with such great opportunities growing up here since fifth grade. There are so many people who have influenced me, past coaches from soccer, volleyball, and basketball. It’s different parts of the components of these sports that made me who I am and a big part of it is SCIS and the commitment to the sports. Without playing basketball or volleyball and the learning experiences I’ve had, I wouldn’t be who I am today.”
