We believe that the athletic program at Clayton High School complements the academic program.  Both involve students in a healthy learning and growth process which helps them to develop the skills to be life long learners.  These complementary programs provide experiences through which individuals can mature and learn to make thoughtful choices while considering the rights and feelings of others.

We believe in providing a comprehensive and inclusive athletic program which includes opportunities through which to teach and learn life skills.  The Clayton High School Athletic Program encourages participation and cooperation with others, a strong commitment to growth on the part of each participant, and performance which demonstrates good citizenship, all practiced in a spirit of healthy competition.
