Students are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities at Cross, including a variety of sports. Although student involvement is voluntary, over 80% of grade-eligible students participate in our athletic programs.
Cross School's athletic program emphasizes teamwork, sportsmanship, as well as team and individual growth. Competing as an athlete helps individuals learn responsibility and to work hard while developing good character, self-discipline, and time management skills. Helping our athletes to build a positive self-image encourages a sense of pride in themselves, their classmates, and their school. Athletes will learn how to set and strive for individual and team goals which will help mold them into strong athletes and teammates.
At Cross Schools, we have high expectations for our athletes to show and uphold fairness, respect for athletes, opponents, and referees. Athletes are expected to display graciousness in winning or losing. Having good sportsmanship is extremely important to show before, during and after sporting events.
Cross Schools offers students the opportunity to compete in the following sports programs:
