Classical Academy Middle School has an after-school sports program for 7th and 8th grade students. Depending on student interest and parent-volunteer coaches, sports change every six weeks. Practice and games are held once a week and include volleyball, flag football, soccer, basketball, cross-country, and track and field. Sporting teams compete schools in the North County Small School’s League.
ASB (Associated Student Body) students are leaders on campus and in the community. They are positive role models and put leadership skills into action, initiate positive changes, and promote community on campus. ASB meets after school most Thursdays from 3:15 pm – 4:45 pm.
