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 Pioneer is not cliché, old fashioned or dated.
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 custom designed, unique only to our brand and forged to lend both heritage to our nation’s forbearers and PCCA’s other Athletic program, the Patriots.
The Pioneer carries an axe, a fundamental tool used, a symbol of leadership and a posture of readiness.
The six top stars represent the six virtues of PCCA: Courage, Honesty, Perseverance, Courtesy, Self-Government and Service.
The seventh star is the anchor and, in tribute to our classical educational model represents the Pioneer Athletic motto: Vis Virtusque – Strength and Virtue.
