At IICS, athletics are more than an extracurricular activity; they are an extension of the classroom, providing opportunities for students to set goals, learn new skills, and gain exposure to the community of a team. These offerings do not exist apart from the total experience but as an essential part of a holistic approach encompassing the intellectual, emotional, physical, social and spiritual elements of each student. We believe the quality of our interscholastic and recreational programs can offer our students the opportunity to further develop their leadership skills and instill important life skills including discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship, and humility. These skills complement what IICS students are already receiving in their classes. Students are encouraged to try out for sports in which they are competitive, but our diverse program provides opportunities to compete at both the interscholastic and intramural levels. The structure of the varsity and junior varsity levels allows students to progress through the program while acquiring new proficiencies and gaining experience. It is a goal of the athletic department to ensure every IICS graduate leaves the school with a desire to lead a rewarding and physically active life.
