Athletics - Home of the Warriors
PACA is home to the PACA Warriors. Athletics at Pan American Christian Academy provides a co-curricular opportunity for student-athletes at the Varsity and Junior Varsity (J.V.) teams who meet our school’s basic standards of spiritual, academic and physical well-being, to represent our school in athletic competition. It is our stated goal to use the various sport activities not only to develop the athletic skills and abilities of our athletes, but also to emphasize spiritual growth and life skills.
PACA athletes strive to be both CHRIST-LIKE in EFFORT and in ATTITUDE at all times. Athletics provides the avenue for which we develop these important areas of our student-athletes’ lives. Our athletes are to be committed to their teams, act with integrity, and compete with sportsmanship, character and pride at all times.
PACA believes that an athletic program provides opportunities for students to acquire tools for lifelong personal growth. These tools include self-discipline, responsibility, cooperation, ability to work as a team, perseverance, desire to play fair, and class in winning and losing.
A variety of competitive sports are available to students: basketball (boys and girls), cheerleading (girls), indoor soccer / futsal (boys and girls), soccer (boys and girls), volleyball (girls), and softball (boys and girls). All sports are offered on both Junior Varsity (under 15 years old) and Varsity (over 15 years old) levels.
PACA participates in the São Paulo High School League and competes against the other American/International schools in the area.
Varsity school athletes compete at the Big 8 or Inter 6 tournaments and J.V. athletes compete at Little 8 tournaments.
