Athletics

We are excited about our athletic program at St. Mark. Over 66% of our middle school students participate in a middle school sport. We offer a variety of sports for boys and girls. Our PreK-2 graders are involved in T-Ball and Little Lions Basketball Program, 3 rd, 4th and 5th graders have the opportunity to participate in basketball clinics and girls in the 5th grade may participate in volleyball clinics in the spring.

There is a strong athletic tradition at St. Mark. St. Mark teams participate in the Southeastern Middle School League in soccer, volleyball, basketball, and baseball. League members include Cape Fear Academy, Friends School, Harrell's Christian Academy, Myrtle Grove Christian School, Southeastern Academy, St. Mary, and Wilmington Christian Academy.

Our athletic program could not survive without the fundraising efforts of our Booster Club. If you are interested in being one of our business sponsors please contact me. For more information about our athletic program please see the link below or visit my Athletic Director Page.
