In accordance with Stephen Girard’s educational mission of Girard College, the athletic program supports an athletic classroom environment where its student-athletes realize and maximize their potential as athletes and as informed, ethical and productive citizens.
As members of the Girard College community, we are committed to excellence in all areas of school life and therefore believe that athletics are a vital component of a well-rounded educational experience. Through the guidance of excellent coaches, Girard College athletics aims to foster in each of our student-athletes the Five Core Values: Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Self-discipline and Compassion. Additionally, we hold our coaches and student-athletes to the highest standards of sportsmanship and fair play.
Committed to the emotional, physical and social well-being of our student-athletes, we encourage our students to reach beyond their comfort zone.
At Girard College we not only represent our school and its illustrious athletic history, we espouse the virtues of our founder and compete to honor Stephen Girard and the life-changing opportunities he has provided to young people since 1848.
