The Interscholastic sports program provides students an opportunity to learn the benefits of competition, hard work, goal setting, cooperation, teamwork, respect and sportsmanship. Students are able to learn, practice, and demonstrate these skills in a safe, structured, and positive environment. Three sports are offered each year for students ages 14 and older: flag football, basketball, and softball. Interscholastic teams compete with teams from small schools like Excelsior. Any student may sign up for a team and will play provided they meet their weekly school responsibilities. Excelsior Academy has a solid reputation for achievement in the interscholastic sports program with some single-year basketball championships and back-to-back and single-year football championships. The positive results of student participation in Interscholastic sports are not found in the victories but are found in the development of confidence and poise that students acquire on and off the fields and courts.
