Vision and Mission
The Athletic Program at Montrose Christian School seeks to develop young men and women who excel in all areas of life. Being an athlete does not simply mean wearing a uniform and attending practices and games. Montrose athletes are representatives of their team, their school, and more importantly, of God. Therefore, we believe athletics should encourage the positive attributes of sportsmanship, teamwork, commitment, dependability, selflessness, loyalty, good work ethic, and self-discipline.
The Athletic Program at Montrose Christian School provides student athletes with the opportunity to build Christ-like character by developing spiritually, emotionally, and physically into godly men and women through the challenges brought about by a well structured, advanced and highly competitive sports program
Character Development and Core Values
The Athletic Program is an effective tool for building and revealing personal character. By participating in sports, the student athletes will have the opportunity to learn about themselves and build Christ-like character as they are challenged to work hard and develop into godly men and women. The Athletic Program’s core values are: Motivation, Attitude, Teamwork, Control and Honor.
Colossians 3:23-24, “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you to serve the Lord Christ.” The Athletic Program believes excellence on the playing field is a part of living honorably before the Lord. Therefore, each student athlete will be urged to work in a way that brings honor to the Lord through achieving their full potential that God has enabled them to achieve.
Philippians 2:5, “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus…” The Athletic Program believes that in any situation, attitude can make the difference between success and failure, or sinfulness and godliness. Therefore, each student athlete will be urged to maintain a positive, goal-oriented, Christ-like attitude.
I Corinthians 12:25-26 “that there should be no division in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another. And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.” The Athletic Program believes unity is commanded in scripture because the Lord has designed strength to be the result of people working together. Therefore, each student athlete will learn to value every person and form a tight bond with those on their team.
I Corinthians 9:27 “But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.” The Athletic Program believes discipline and self-control is a part of submitting to the Lord and those He has put in leadership positions. Therefore, each student athlete will be subject to a disciplined program that will help them to develop personal discipline and self-control.
II Timothy 2:20-21 “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, set apart and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.” The Athletic Program believes integrity is the basis with which we stand before a holy God. Therefore, each student athlete will learn how to maintain integrity through times of testing.
