At KCC, we believe that care for and value of our bodies is as important an expression of our faith as anything else we do. Sports offer opportunities for our students to love God with all of their strength while they strengthen their understanding of everything from community and teamwork to healthy competition. As a result, we offer a full list of sports teams, led by qualified, Christian coaches, for our students to pursue athletics during their Middle and High School years.

Though we are proud of our strong history of competitively successful teams, we are even more excited about our extremely high level of participation (about 90%) among our students and the life experiences they obtain in the process.

Kansas City Christian belongs to the Kansas High School Athletic Association (KSHSAA) and the Crossroads Conference.

We encourage you to join us for a game, attend a match, or come visit campus to learn more about how your student could benefit from these exciting opportunities!

If you would like to set-up a tour to learn more about KCC with one of our Parent Ambassadors, please fill out the inquiry form at your convenience.
