Have you ever thought, “My children want to play soccer and volleyball, so I have to send them to the public school”?
A common myth about Christian education is that we do not have opportunities for athletics. This is untrue!
Most Christian schools have competitive sports! In fact, in the Greater Pittsburgh Region, there’s even a sports league available for Christian Schools, called SWCAC. And some of our schools have sports teams in WPIAL–the same league you’d find in the public schools!
Having smaller schools can actually improve your child’s chances of playing on a team.
And our schools often make it to, and win, playoffs! Or even championships!
There are plenty of good reasons why your local public school might be your best fit, but athletics might not necessarily be one of them!
