Athletic Department Mission Statement


All students interested in sports are encouraged to participate in athletics.  We believe that athletics teaches student-athletes responsibility, teamwork, and sportsmanship. Our goal is to help young athletes learn how to develop these characteristics through sports. We want to mold them into individuals that will be successful on and off the court or playing field. Through the dedication and determination of our coaching staff, we are confident that our student-athletes will also be prepared for future endeavors beyond high school. We have the expectation that our young men and women will be productive and respectful citizens when they graduate Tierra Encantada Charter School.
