Atlanta Classical Academy encourages students, families, and faculty to pursue the core virtues of our school:
courage, courtesy, honesty, perseverance, self-government, and service. These core virtues form the basis for the philosophy behind all athletic endeavors at Atlanta Classical. We will compete to the best of our ability, striving to attain virtue, knowledge, and happiness. Atlanta Classical Academy recognizes that athletic teams enhance the atmosphere of the student body, providing students, parents, and faculty with the opportunity to express school spirit and build community. Athletic competition inspires and elevates the minds and characters of those who compete and those who watch. Therefore, all members of the Atlanta Classical family can support the athletic program in a variety of ways, including coaching, transportation, concession help, and attending events. A successful program is a demonstration of the entire school working together.
Athletics will provide a vehicle in which to teach student-athletes to become virtuous citizens. Atlanta Classical will maintain proper management of a community in which every individual recognizes his or her particular role and performs his or her own task as part of a properly functioning community. Students and coaches will set goals and adhere to them even when faced with obstacles. Students will learn that sport requires courage. The spirit of sport is challenge: the greater the challenge, the greater the victory. During competition, student athletes must remain courteous and honest. They must retain the ability to treat others with honor and civility as well as enjoying the game for its own sake, with proper consideration for fairness, ethics, and respect. By doing so, we will adhere to all governing organizations’ rules and regulations. Student-athletes will also become students of the game in which they are participating. They will gain a life-long appreciation for the game as well as learn how to set and assess realistic goals.

The school has placed all sports sanctioned by the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) and Metro Atlanta Athletic Conference (MAAC) under the direction of the Atlanta Classical Academy Athletics Department. Therefore, those programs are funded by the school’s athletics budget. Club sports that fall outside of the GHSA and MAAC umbrella are self-funded programs that have their operating costs built into a registration fee paid by each participant.
