Know ye that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. (I Corinthians 9:24)

Athletics at Principia are all about growth—in skill and competitiveness, in persistence and patience, and in physical and spiritual strength. Along with developing a love of sport and true sportsmanship, the Upper School athletics program focuses on teamwork, perseverance, and character. Training is vigorous and practices are regular—that’s how our student-athletes master their chosen sport and improve their ability to compete effectively.

“High minded and hard fighting” . . . our motto demonstrates that we strive for an excellence beyond winning. In the worlds of the Apostle Paul, our goal is the “prize” of spiritual growth.

With 16 sports on offer through the year, all students have the opportunity to compete in the eight-school Metro League on varsity or junior varsity teams. (When numbers require, we organize additional teams so that every interested student can participate.)

Season Preparation Information

Sports Camp

All Upper School athletes planning to participate in a fall sport are required to attend preseason training in August. These free, residential programs run from five days to two weeks and fulfill a MSHSAA mandate. June camps are optional and have a modest fee. They run from three to eight days. Both camps are a great opportunity to focus on spiritual “conditioning” alongside physical.


Principia belongs to and complies with regulations of the Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA) for participation in interscholastic competition. You’ll find the necessary forms for student-athletes on the School Portal.
