Welcome to SWA Athletics!


Southern Wake Academy recognizes the important relationship between academics and athletics, and we strongly believe that regular exercise, development of skills, and interscholastic athletic competition play critical roles in each student’s growth. The Athletic Department recognizes and supports that the primary responsibility of student athletes is educational and therefore supports the link of academic achievement to eligibility. Our sports program helps nurture integrity, pride, loyalty and overall character which builds school spirit.


Southern Wake Academy offers a co-educational interscholastic athletic program for students in grades 6-12. While some sports require try-outs for participation, others are open to any interested student.


Our goal for Southern Wake Academy athletics is to develop loyalty, sportsmanship, perseverance and leadership in each of our students. The final outcome is a better citizenry demonstrating these values throughout their lives. We encourage students to participate in athletics, granting each student the opportunity to continue playing their favorite sport or to learn new skills.
