Abundant Life Academy is one of the few Christian therapeutic boarding schools that provide the option of athletics for their students. At ALA, we not only offer a broad range of sports for both girls and boys, we consider them a pivotal component of our holistic approach to leadership training and student development.

Athletics at Abundant Life Academy are an essential element of our advanced leadership training, providing the opportunity for character development, interdependence, accountability, discipline, and triumph over both personal and group challenges. ALA sports are not just an addition to our program; they are a part of the whole package of what we offer. Participation in athletics at ALA contributes to the whole process of a student’s maturation.

We believe that athletic participation is a key component of what we do and thus, encourage every student to be involved in at least one sport during their stay at Abundant Life Academy.

Very frequently, we find that teens who once had no desire for athletic involvement discover a side to themselves that they were unaware of and often, our students discover that they possess leadership skills that they were previously unacquainted with.


What We Offer

Abundant Life Academy currently offers the following competitive team sports:

As part of our leadership program, we empower students to pursue their passions and teach them effective and appropriate ways to articulate that.  If a student or group of students desires to play a sport that we do not currently offer, they are able to present that in the form of a proposal to be reviewed by our Executive Team. Often we have been able to offer a sport on a seasonal basis as a result of such propositions.

In addition to team sports, we also offer a first-rate Horsemanship program that facilitates everything from basic to advanced equine education and skill development. Our Horsemanship program also has an optional academic module that allows participating students to receive science credit. (Note: our Horsemanship program is independent of our EAP, or equine therapy.)
