Athletics are an integral part of the educational program and a means to accomplish the goals of education. Our athletic program exists for the welfare of students and the contributions it makes to their educational experience.

Athletic participation builds self-esteem and confidence and provides the necessary tools for success. The interaction between individuals on the fields of sport teaches students the value of teamwork, while developing the proper competitive spirit, combined with a sense of fairness. Sportsmanship and fair play are developed in an atmosphere of mutual respect.The goal of our athletic department is to help and guide each student-athlete to become the best student, athlete, and person they can possibly be through the teachings of hard work and dedication. In keeping with the mission of CHEC, the athletic programs in both middle and high school provide a positive and inclusive atmosphere where participants can grow emotionally, intellectually and physically. Athletic programs are an extension of the classroom at CHEC; important characteristics and skills such as sportsmanship, integrity, and grit are ingrained through team building, practices or workouts, and games.
