Allison Academy’s tradition of excellence in athletic competition complements a rigorous and challenging academic program. Students are involved in interscholastic athletics from grades six through twelve, but may also elect physical education, or intramurals & fitness to meet their requirement. Although participation on interscholastic team sports is not a requirement, nearly 80% of our students play at least one sport and many are two-to-three season athletes.
Through team sports, students are encouraged to reach their potential in physical fitness, skill development, and teamwork. Sportsmanship, discipline, and leadership are emphasized by the coaches at every level.
Allison Academy has a boys’ basketball team that has a schedule of 15 - 20 games each season. The team competes against other schools within the area, and we enthusiastically support them!
