At Hickory Christian Academy, athletics is not our primary focus, but we do understand athletics to be a key component in a well-rounded education. By participating on a team, students are trained to work with others, trust teammates, represent their school and their faith publicly, gain competition skills that will permeate life in general, and stay physically fit. In short, athletics is a component in the larger picture of developing in spirit, mind, and body as a believer in Jesus.
