Athletics at C. & E. Merdinian Armenian Evangelical School provides an opportunity for student-athletes who meet our school’s basic standards of spiritual, academic, and physical well being, to represent our school in athletic competitions. It is our goal to use the various sport activities not only to develop the athletic skills and abilities of our athletes, but also to emphasize spiritual growth and life skills. Our athletes are to be committed to their teams, act with integrity, compete with sportsmanship, and show school spirit at all times.
