The Cyclone Athletic philosophy is built on the same bedrock foundation as Porter-Gaud School. Building a competitive and respected athletic program is not an end unto itself. It is a means by which we develop young men and women who are committed to faith, honor, and knowledge, and who are vigilant in watching their words, actions, thoughts, character, and habits. Developing teams made up of scholar-athletes with these values results in those teams pursuing excellence, and therefore being highly competitive. Excellence follows from doing the right things, the right ways, for the right reasons.
