Purpose of Athletics

Middle and high school athletic competitions play an important role in our national culture. It is not uncommon for parents and students to share an interest of participation in sports. Athletics are a vehicle that can be used to foster responsibility and cultivate leadership skills in students.  These are qualities that may be taken into consideration when applying to colleges.

Just as in the classroom, GCS is committed to excellence within our athletic department. Concentration will be given towards health, physical development, leadership, perseverance, and integrity in competition.
