PCCA values all scholars and sees athletics as a foundational element to holistic and complete development. What’s learned in the classroom is applied in sports; what’s learned in sports is applied in the classroom.
PCCA Athletics is never just about winning on the scoreboard. It’s about embracing challenge, living virtuously and fulfilling commitment. It’s a place where scholars hone their character and prepare for a life of contribution and leadership.
It’s for these exact reasons that as PCCA officially launched their official athletic programs – the Patriot program at Palm Bay and the Pioneer program at West Melbourne, great strides of diligence and care went into how sports would be delivered:
Anchoring all actions is our fundamental belief that our virtues must be lived out: Our staff, coaches and athletes wear them; they hang above doors in the gym, it’s found on the wristbands of all our families; it’s our core; it’s how we play.
It’s never just about winning on the scoreboard. It’s about winning in life: character, determination, commitment.
Being a Patriot is not cliché.
It’s a term emboldening all scholar-athletes to reflect on our heritage but ultimately embrace a willingness to represent something greater than oneself. Our brand design is a badge of significance, weight, and purpose:
The central character is an adaptation from PCCA’s original Patriot design, lending both heritage to our school and instant association with our nation’s founding fathers.
The Patriot carries a Spontoon, a spear promoted by George Washington and Benjamin Franklin as a weapon not wisely laid aside. A symbol of leadership and a posture of readiness.
The six stars represent the six virtues of PCCA: Courage, Honesty, Perseverance, Courtesy, Self-Government and Service.
The seventh star is the anchor and represents Honor.
