Philosophy of Athletics

The Athletic programs at Newbury Park Adventist Academy exist to support the mission of the school; to challenge and encourage each student athlete’s spiritual growth, by teaching and modeling genuine Christian character.

Athletics provides an arena for Christian growth that is unique to the rest of the school environment. Through these experiences comes the learning and developing of the fundamentals of the Christian faith: humility, selflessness, love, unity, self-discipline, courage, perseverance, hard work and sacrifice. The objective of our program is to succeed; the primary goal of our program is to strengthen each student athlete’s relationship with Christ and to glorify Christ.

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.” Colossians 3:23
