Overview

ELEMENTARY ATHLETICS

Junior league basketball provides an opportunity for the 4th–7th grade students to get involved in athletic activities. The format for this program provides an opportunity for both boys and girls (on separate teams) to compete. Games are scheduled for Saturday mornings, and the season runs for six weeks. Sixth grade boys and girls are allowed to play on the middle school soccer team.

MIDDLE & UPPER SCHOOL ATHLETICS

Killian Hill Christian School is a member of the Georgia Independent Christian Athletic Association (GICAA). The purpose of the GICAA is to promote high school and middle school athletics for students in Christian Schools, Independent Schools, and give opportunities for athletic competition to athletes who may receive a nontraditional education. The goal of the GICAA is to create an environment where high school and middle school students can compete at their levels yet still be encouraged to grow in their faith.
