Athletics at CPS
Co-curricular athletic participation is an encouraged part of the educational experience at Catholic Partnership Schools. This participation teaches important values such as teamwork, discipline, setting and striving for goals, good health habits and good sportsmanship. CPS supports a variety of athletic programs and teams based on the interest of the CPS student population. Many times the students interest in teams or sports exceeds the number of coaches that we have. If you are interested in coaching a sport with CPS, please consider volunteering.
