Parkway Christian School is committed to spend hours teaching, encouraging, correcting, and supporting Parkway athletes. Our Athletic Department believes athletics help create memories for students, and parents, that last a lifetime. Male and female student-athletes compete inter-scholastically on over thirty different teams. Individual gifts and talents will be identified, developed, and practiced. Our objective for athletics is: "Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God." 1 Cor. 10:31
Parkway Christian is a proud member of the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) and competes with both public and private schools throughout the Greater Detroit area and in state tournaments. Parkway Christian is also a member of the Michigan Independent Athletic Conference (MIAC). The MIAC is comprised of fourteen different schools that are divided into two divisions according to the sport and strength of schedules. Parkway Christian offers a variety of sports from the elementary through high school. Each year the Athletic Department will review the current sports offerings and evaluate changes for the upcoming school year. A complete list of sport offerings can be found below, or at our athletic website (pceagles.com).
The Vision of Parkway Christian School’s Athletic Program is to foster the development of Christian faith, character, and leadership through the aggressive cultivation of the gifts and abilities each student athlete has been given so that they run the “race in such a way as to get the prize."
Our Athletic Department is committed to disciple student athletes and coaches, to be an outreach to opposing teams and fans and to the larger community, preparation of student athletes for both competition and life with Christ as our model, and the pursuit of athletic excellence.
Athletic Department Core Values
In addition to the MHSAA academic requirements, PCS student athletes will adhere to the following requirements:
- A quarterly GPA no lower than 2.0
- No failing grades on the most recent quarterly and/or semester report card
- No more than two missing assignments in a class
- Students who receive an “incomplete” on their report cards will not be eligible for participation until work is complete. (Special consideration may be given when the “incomplete” was due to illness.)
- A Biblical lifestyle both inside and outside the school.
- Pre-Concussion IMPACT testing is provided to all student athletes in grades 6-12.
- The results are good for two years.
The High School Dean and Athletic Director will determine all athletic eligibility matters. Student or parent appeals of ineligibility status will first be presented to the high school Dean, second to the administrators, with final appeal to the school board.
