At Community Of Peace Academy, We Believe…

Athletics are an extension of the classroom and contribute to the lifelong development of the whole student.

Students have the opportunity to participate in quality school-sponsored after-school activities with direction furnished by a specially selected group of teachers and coaches.

The mission of the CPA Athletic Program is to create an environment that fosters respect, leadership, teamwork, sportsmanship and a commitment to excellence. Competitive athletics instill in our student-athletes the lifelong values of accountability, integrity, structure and discipline. Our vision is to reinvent the urban school experience by providing opportunities for teaching, learning and growing in all student-athletes.

We believe that athletics is an integral piece of a student’s educational journey and that academics and athletics work together to develop the whole child on the field and on the court.

Through athletics, our coaches help our student-athletes develop socially and emotionally, building the skills of self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and responsible decision-making, all while building relationships with their teammates, opponents and community members.
