Charlottesville High School
Charlottesville High School recognizes the value of extracurricular activities and their role in facilitating the development of an engaged, dynamic and well balanced student body. The athletics department at Charlottesville High School, through the diverse group of activities offered, will seek to develop an athletic organization with an active and involved membership that is concerned with the total development of the student athlete, regardless of gender, race, socio-economic status, or activity. The athletic department will encourage and support the physical, mental and emotional development of Charlottesville High School's student athletes, by facilitating improved relationships between athletes, parents, coaches, teachers, administrators, and the community.sports icons Research overwhelmingly shows that students involved in extracurricular activities have improved attendance, a higher grade point average, an increased graduation rate, and increased levels of success after high school. The extracurricular activities at Charlottesville High School are an integral part of the comprehensive educational program offered in the Charlottesville City School System. It is the opinion of the CHS athletic department that the skills developed in athletics are directly transferable to areas outside athletics. Students involved in extracurricular activities will undoubtedly have an improved high school experience through the relationships and skills developed during participation. Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition, health, fitness, and self sufficiency during victory and defeat are an important part of the Black Knight experience.
Charlottesville High School has an outstanding tradition of excellence and achievement in extracurricular activities. Interscholastic activities are voluntary and a privilege at CHS, not a right. The CHS athletic department will place primary emphasis on academic achievement and sportsmanship. If a student-athlete is identified by a parent, teacher, coach, or administrator as having academic or behavioral concerns, the athletic department will proactively seek appropriate measures to address and accommodate the needs of our student-athletes.
We encourage you to support the CHS athletics program at home and on the road. You may support our student athletes by joining us in the PTO, Athletic Boosters program, and in the stands.
