Athletics

The Power of Perseverance

Our students experience the values of perseverance, leadership, and respect through participating in physical pursuits and athletic competitions.

King athletes, known as Vikings,  positively partner with one another and commit to a shared goal, emerging more confident and well-rounded. King Athletics offers a diverse program from physical education to competitive teams, designed as an essential component of the overall educational experience.

Athletic excellence demands constant growth and teamwork; our coaches and players create an atmosphere that engages, challenges, and supports students as they strive for excellence.
