TRAIL is committed to the development of the whole child, including physical well-being. Through Physical Education classes and a wide range of extra-curricular programs and athletic teams, students have opportunities to set goals, hone their skills, and excel in both individual and team sports.
The Renaissance Academy's Athletic Department believes that sports and fitness can be important elements of a student’s discovering their potentials, and stresses the importance of goal-setting, improvement, and the development of character. Ultimately, we believe that building character is the essence of the educational experience. Through sacrifice and effort, our student-athletes struggle, fail, succeed, and try again -- always having fun in a nurturing but competitive environment designed to produce young people of great character. The pursuit of team and individual excellence plays a major role in the development of our student-athletes. Our outstanding coaches work to improve individual and team performance; and to promote teamwork, leadership, and sportsmanship.
Participation in interscholastic athletics at TRAIL promotes the development of physical, mental, and social skills; a positive self-image; an understanding of teamwork and cooperation; and the sharing of personal experiences. Each person involved in the TRAIL Athletic Program -- coaches, athletes, and supporters -- has a unique opportunity to teach other participants positive life skills and values.
