Athletic Department Philosophy

¨Cairo American College athletic department philosophy supports the mission statement of the college and contributes to the overall educational program. It is our firm belief that a well-conducted competitive athletic program, based on sound educational principles and best practice, significantly aids the development of every student-athlete.

¨We believe in offering interscholastic athletic participation opportunities to as many students as possible, striving for broad participation and competitive excellence, whilst encouraging the highest levels of sportsmanship and fair play. We believe that the welfare of the student-athlete is our prime concern – physically, academically, and emotionally. In addition, the development of positive social attitudes is paramount and the under-riding objective of the athletic department philosophy.
