The mission of the Greater Atlanta Christian School athletic program is to utilize sports in an excellent way as a vehicle to help each student grow as Jesus did, in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.

Merriam-Webster defines sportsmanship as “conduct becoming to one participating in a sport.”  Furthermore, it is “fairness, respect for one’s opponent, and graciousness in winning or losing.”  Greater Atlanta Christian School believes that sportsmanship is more valuable than winning.  If we win without sportsmanship, we will consider it a loss.  If we lose, but exhibit great sportsmanship, we will consider it a victory.

Helping our students grow in favor with God and man is part of our mission as a school.  Therefore, we must use sports to gain favor!  If you choose to coach a sport, participate in a sport, or become a spectator at a sporting event, we encourage you to exhibit sportsmanship at all times.  Your decision to do anything less will be considered a negative reflection upon our school and a total disregard for our mission.  Good sportsmanship will become standard operational procedure at GAC.

We strive for excellence in our athletic program.  Winning is a by-product of excellence.  We may lose on the scoreboard at times but we measure ourselves by excellence.  If we have used our talents to our fullest, given our all during the contest, and exemplified the character of Christ during competition…then we consider ourselves as having been successful.
