Athletics Role in Education

As part of holistic education, academics and athletics serve as a part of a healthy, cathartic balance for our students, staff, and coaches. The relationships that are established extend beyond the fields, courts, and pool. Therefore, Mission Viejo High School seeks to maintain strong lines of communication, lasting personal relationships, and a transformational philosophy that helps develop a complete student-athlete.

Author Ursula Le Guin stated, “there is an end to every journey, but it is the journey that matters in the end.” Mission Viejo High School has always prided itself on the “journey” and the process. We emphasize the importance of hard work, dedication, collaboration, and accountability. Simply put, our winning tradition has been the byproduct of maintaining high standards and expectations for all of our students.

The “journey” is paramount to a successful life beyond our students’ high school years and we continue to work tirelessly to make sure that all of our students’ needs are met so they can become the best versions of themselves. After all, “Once a Diablo, always a Diablo” because “Tradition does not graduate!”
