EXTRACURRICULAR ATHLETICS

& ACTIVITIES

A student's day of growth, civic involvement, and friendship does not end when the last bell rings. Therefore, it is important to offer students and families a variety of extra-curricular programs.

     Can't say enough about Merit Academy.  My son was always doing so poorly in Math, and in his first semester at Merit, he eared his first 97% on a test!

    My son son wanted to go to Merit Academy so badly because of the Civil Air Patrol program. Friday's are his favorite day of school now, and he is so excited to take a step closer to his career as a Commercial Pilot.

There will be many athletics and activities available, the full breadth of which will be solidified once we gather student interest and sponsor/coach availability. Below is a list of several athletics and activities that have already been requested and will be introduced and ready to grow within the first two years:
