Inspiring Athleticism, Challenging Athletes
For all Colorado Academy students, our physical education and athletic programs offer individual and age-appropriate sports participation. Our goal is to promote lifelong fitness, provide opportunities for growth and good sportsmanship, to show the benefits of dedication, hard work, and continuous practice, and for students to have fun.

As with all of our programs, in athletics we work to engender respect for adults, fellow team members, and opponents. For those who aspire to be serious athletes, CA offers some of the finest coaches and most competitive interscholastic teams in Colorado 3A, 4A, and 5A competition. Our teams have held state championships for men's soccer, women's soccer, field hockey, ultimate Frisbee, lacrosse, and women's golf.

Independent Sports Credit

CA offers Independent Sports Credit, with a maximum of one trimester in any single school year. The credit will be granted only for activities not already offered by CA’s Athletics Department. That is, student-athletes will not receive credit for playing on club teams when CA offers the same sport or activity during a concurrent season, nor will CA offer credit for a student-athlete in a sport that CA offers if that student doesn’t play on the CA team.

Six of ten hours per week must be taken Monday-Thursday with direct supervision by a sport/activity-specific coach who must submit a participation grade at the end of the trimester. An activity that demands only weekend hours does not qualify for independent credit.

Athletic Facilities

CA’s athletic center and its outdoor facilities provide students with two gymnasiums, a fully equipped weight room, an indoor track and climbing wall, an outdoor pool, a newly refurbished baseball diamond and dugouts, eight outdoor tennis courts, and five athletic fields, including an artificial turf field.

Our goal is to provide students with the opportunity for growth through individual and team participation, emphasizing positive group involvement, fun, good sportsmanship, a strong commitment in effort and time, and respect for adults, fellow team members, and opponents. It’s not all about winning; it’s all about developing and mentoring winners.
