ACTIVITIES AND ATHLETICS

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 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. ~ Pamela Gagnon

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:

We have a phenomenal Civil Air Patrol squadron!  In addition, we work with the AOPA and are building a high school curriculum in Aviation and Aerospace Studies, preparing students to be Unmanned (Drone) or Manned pilots!

If a Merit student wants to play a sport not offered at Merit but is offered at WPSD, that student can try-out and play for WPSD (and vice versa). It's a wonderful community!
