I Corinthians 6:19-20 says:  Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?  For ye are bought with a price:  therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. This verse is the foundation for our philosophy in the areas of physical education and athletics. Since we are not our own and since our bodies are God’s, we must keep the body in subjection to the new nature.

Athletics has its place in the Christian school, just as academics and spiritual instruction have their places. At Raleigh Christian Academy, we will not place the training of the body above the spiritual and academic training.  Guidelines for athletic participation will be followed by all students.

The prevailing attitude among all those connected with the athletic program at RCA is to be:  Christ must be seen in me, in my manner, and my conversation, whether I win or lose the game.

Raleigh Christian Academy offers a wide range of sports for both middle school and senior high school students. Young ladies are given the opportunity to participate in volleyball, cheerleading, basketball, golf, and soccer while cross country, soccer, basketball, baseball, and golf are offered to young men.
