Our student-athletes not only excel in competition, but care for their health and well-being and serve as true ambassadors for sportsmanship.
The resilience, dedication and collaboration that ACS students practice every day serve them well in our athletic program -- from physical education classes and after school opportunities for Elementary children to a wide selection of team sports available to Middle and High School students.
Physical education and wellness is embedded into the ACS curriculum across all divisions. Elementary students have PE every day. Middle School and Grade 9 students have PE and Wellness every other day. Grades 10-12 have access to a multitude of physical well-being options. Physical and health literacy is the ultimate goal to build competent, confident and motivated life long learners.
