Athletic Program

The mission of our athletic program is to offer student-athletes, through participation in competitive athletics, an opportunity to experience meaningful growth, accomplishment, and success. As a Harvard Cougar student-athlete you are a positive role model within our school and the community at large. As a student-athlete at our school, your sportsmanship goals should include:

  • Maintaining at least a C+ in all classes, attend school daily, and exhibit positive behavior;
  • Respecting the rules of the games, the officials who administer the rules, and their decisions;
  • Respecting our opponents as fellow student-athletes,
  • Refraining from engaging in all types of disrespectful behavior
  • Looking at athletic participation as a potentially beneficial learning experience, whether you win or lose;
  • Educating other students and fans to understand the rules of the game, and the value of sportsmanship.


Fine and Performing Arts

Our extracurricular programs are designed to provide opportunities for students to extend their learning beyond regular school hours. Students are able to participate in a variety of activities, like salsa dancing, choir and art.
