Mount Saint Joseph Academy student-athletes strive for excellence in athletics, as well as academics.
The Mount athletics/coaching staff venture to instill qualities of leadership, loyalty, and sportsmanship. Student-athletes discover how to deal with adversity not only through winning and losing, but in practices and games.
It is our hope is that every experience a Mount student-athlete has on the field or the court will provide her with an opportunity to grow personally and as a leader, and that this growth will translate into all aspects of her life.
Mount Saint Joseph Academy provides a comprehensive athletics program for students in grades nine through twelve. Student participation in athletics is voluntary and the Academy strongly encourages all students to be involved—whether as an athlete, a team manager, a non-playing assistant, or a fan. Our vision is to emphasize a Christ-like attitude valuing positive relationships and fairness in play over winning at any cost, while continually evaluating the athletic program in terms of the educational purpose of our institution. This Athletic Handbook is a guide to the values and beliefs that are at the foundation of our athletic program, and the corresponding expectations that we place on our student-athletes, families, coaches, and other members of the school community. Athletics presents many opportunities for meaningful formative and rewarding experiences steeped in our Mount sisterhood. However, participation is both a privilege and a responsibility. Members of the MSJA community should read and be familiar with the contents of this handbook so that everyone knows and understands the expectations for successful participation in the Academy’s athletic program.
The Mount Saint Joseph Academy Athletic Department’s mission includes a unique combination of academics, athletics, co-curriculars and spirituality to benefit the holistic growth and social and emotional learning of all students. Mount athletics seeks to optimize the classroom beyond the classroom through physical rigor, competition, camaraderie, collaboration, and unity towards a common goal of success through optimizing teamwork, practice, and play.
