Mobile Christian School Athletic Director Welcome
Our mission is to offer a competitive high school athletic program which first and foremost reflects the standards Christ taught us to live by, and which provides us an avenue to teach these principals by our actions and words. Secondarily, our athletic program reflects the interest of our students, faculty, and the church in the Mobile area.
The athletic program is a source of enthusiasm and loyalty that enlivens and enriches the life of our academic community. The program keeps our graduates in touch with the school after they graduate, and serves as a rallying point for many of the community who have never attended MCS.
We recognize that the school's obligation to Christ, the parents who entrust their sons and daughters to us, and the community is to provide our students with a level of quality education which leads to academic achievements, contributing to social development which prepares them for meaningful Christian lives and careers.
Accordingly, all our efforts are guided by certain values we believe essential to the fulfillment of the school's obligation:
Our primary purpose is to promote the personal growth of our students athletes, to become in life the best they can be. It is our abiding goal to foster the ideals and standards which will enable them to grow spiritually, emotionally and intellectually.
By their very nature, athletics inevitably involve character development; for this reason, we must conduct ourselves with utmost integrity and self-control. All our programs and activities must be consistent with the teachings of the Bible, the policies of the school, and the governing athletic bodies.
We are dedicated to winning in all aspects of competition – as individuals, as team members, and as representatives of Christ and Mobile Christian School. We clearly understand that the success of any one person is always the result of dedicated effort on the part of many people. Therefore, while we recognize individual performances, we place the greater emphasis on the achievements of the team.
Dedication to excellence should distinguish our effort in every sport in which we compete. Excellence should be reflected in the conduct of all our teams, the performance of all our teams, the fiscal soundness of our program, and the condition of our facilities. We will always strive to give our all and, thereby, realize our best possibilities.
Our goal is to maintain a model Christian athletic program which sets standards other athletic programs may seek to emulate. We will continue to pioneer and promote policies which will enhance the quality of high school athletics in this community and state.
The athletic director assumes primary responsibility to insure that these goals are accomplished. Secondary responsibility rests with each head coach of each team. The administration and finally the board of directors of Mobile Christian School are ultimately responsible for the realization of these goals.
