As the Athletic Director, I am often asked my opinion of athletics and my philosophy on school athletics in general. I believe athletics to be vital to a school’s energy and overall spirit. While academics will always come first, we strongly believe sports are a great way to teach life lessons that will be helpful for every participant throughout their life.
While creating your child’s schedule for school next year, you won’t see individual classes on Discipline, Teamwork, Handling Adversity, Handling Success, Commitment, Work Ethic, Value of Preparation and Punctuality. To help us teach these life lessons, we offer Football, Basketball Baseball, Volleyball, Hockey, Softball, Soccer, Track and Field, Tennis, Cross Country Skiing, Swimming, Cross Country Running, Cheerleading and Wrestling. At Monroe Catholic we strongly believe in challenging our students and pushing them in the classroom. I see no reason why we should accept anything less on the field, on the court or in the pool.
As a PreK-12 school we have some strong advantages over other schools within our community. We have the opportunity to begin working with our student athletes at a young age. Our varsity coaches are very involved in our Junior High athletics. You won’t see this at any other school in Fairbanks. These advantages and our willingness to challenge our athletes to be their best, have led our high school, with roughly 125 students to extraordinary success over the past eight years.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me anytime. You can reach me at the office at 452-2210, on my cell at 322-9043 or just pop in and say hello. I believe very strongly that when deciding where to place your child to insure they reach their academic and athletic potential, there are NO dumb questions. I look forward to speaking with you soon
Best of Everything,
Director of Athletics
