Physical Education

We believe that athletics enrich every student’s school experience, and traditionally, 85% of our student body plays on a Jaguar team throughout the school year. Our athletics program is an extension of the classroom, and:

  • teaches students how to balance their academic, social, spiritual, and emotional lives
  • demonstrates what can be accomplished by collaboration and cooperation
  • develops a strong work ethic
  • teaches the importance of commitment and follow-through
  • gives students a sense of belonging to something larger than themselves
  • prepares students to encounter competition in school and in later life
  • develops an ethical culture of sportsmanship and fair play
  • gives students a feeling of accomplishment
  • develops leadership skills in players and in our student captains

Our desire is for every one of our students to feel a sense of pride in representing the Jaguars with the character and ethical values taught in AJA’s athletics program. AJA players are recognized for their high standards, kindness, and fair play—menschlichkeit—on fields, mats, and courts across the state of Georgia and throughout the United States.
