At St. Ignatius Catholic School and Chesterton Academy, we focus on forming the whole person—mind, body, and soul— so our students are inspired to lead integrated lives that glorify God. The athletics program at St. Ignatius plays a role in that development and leading our students to true human flourishing. St. Ignatius offers athletics for grades 5-12, as well as athletics and sports programming for younger students.
“Give thanks to God for the gift of sport, in which the human person exercises his body, intellect, and will, recognizing these abilities as so many gifts of his Creator.” – St. John Paul II
St. Ignatius Chesterton Academy co-ops with Stockbridge High School for some sports.
Our students are also eligible to participate in some athletic programs offered through the Kaukauna Area School District and the Kaukauna Recreation Department such as football, wrestling, and boys volleyball. (Visit the KASD website and the Kaukauna Rec Department website for more information.)
Holy Cross CYO (Catholic Youth Organization) basketball at St. Ignatius is open to all high school students in the area, both boys and girls. Teams play against other CYO teams from the Valley from December through February and conclude the season with a tournament to crown champions in each division: Boys Freshman/Sophomore, Boys Junior/Senior, and Girls. Players are encouraged to form teams or will be placed on a team. Each team must have at least two coaches/responsible adults at practice sessions held in the St. Ignatius gym.
