Extra Curricular Activities

 

Extracurricular activities offer students an opportunity to develop skills in their own particular areas of interest. Students and parents must be willing to expend extra time and effort if these programs are to be successful.
 
Athletics
All athletes are expected to represent our school in a Christ-like manner. A fee is charged for each sport in which a student chooses to participate. This fee is used to cover some of the expenses of the athletic program. If there is sufficient interest, students in grades 6-12 may participate in the following sports:
Baseball (boys)
Basketball (boys and girls)
Bowling (boys and girls)
Cheerleading, Basketball and Competitive (boys and girls)
Cross Country (boys and girls)
Golf (boys and girls)
Soccer (boys and girls)
Softball (girls)
Tennis (boys and girls)
Track (boys and girls)
Volleyball (girls)
Other sports, dependent upon student interest and conference availability
 
Rules, regulations, and procedures are covered in the Student Athlete Handbook. All students and their parents who are interested in the athletic program should be familiar with this handbook.
 
Practice sessions for the various teams will be set by the coaches, and will be final. Students are expected to be at all practices, unless excused by the coach. All athletes must have a physical examination before practices begin in order to participate.
 
Eligibility
Eligibility applies to music, drama, or any other activity where students represent the school publicly. A student’s eligibility will be determined at the end of each interim. A student will automatically become ineligible to participate, if placed on academic probation or while serving school suspension. For a student to participate in any school activity (fine arts, etc.) on any particular day, they must be in attendance on that day and remain in school the entire day.
 
See Student Athlete Handbook for athletic eligibility requirements.
 
FUNDING FOR ACTIVITIES
Extra-curricular clubs and activities sponsored by SCA must have all fundraising projects for their activity approved by the Headmaster. This will involve a written request outlining the nature of the project, including what the project involves, the purpose any generated funds will have, how the money will be secured, spent, and accounted for, beginning and ending dates, and the names of the faculty sponsor(s) and student project managers. Any fund raising project being considered by an SCA club or activity must not require long range commitments by clients. This ensures that events do not overlap and become a monetary burden.

Student Government
