Come with us to Friday night lights. The stands are packed with Eagles of all ages; from letter jacket-clad high schoolers to gleeful preschoolers cheering alongside their parents. There's a palpable sense of school pride, an almost-electric excitement.
You see, at Mount Paran Christian, athletics are a school-wide affair - uniting the preschool, lower, middle, and high school with a common sense of belonging. Even the three-year-olds know they are Eagles from day one.
Beyond school unity, sports bring an opportunity for students to excel physically and discover God-given abilities. Every student can find an area to connect athletically. Even our fifth-graders have the opportunity to participate in no-cut sports, including cross country, football, swimming, track and field, and wrestling.
From multiple ball fields, two gymnasiums, and tennis courts to the on-campus batting cages and indoor athletic training facilities, student-athletes are equipped with a stellar environment for success. In addition, the newly-constructed Catherine Steele Sewell Stadium seats 2,500 fans.
High school teams compete in the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) A-private. Our teams have excelled, earning region championship titles in almost every sport. Leaders and coaches are strongly committed to competing for State titles every year. More importantly, the athletic teams are coached by men and women who are committed to the mission of the school and serve to disciple young student-athletes for Jesus Christ. Character and faith are never left on the bench. It's the MPC Way.
MPC also has ranked in the top 10 out of 100+ class-A high schools in the Georgia Athletic Directors Association (GADA) Regions' Directors Cup. The program has been repeatedly honored with the Metro 10 League Cup for the highest achievement in middle school sports.
