Real Life Christian Academy offers an active athletic program for students from kindergarten through 12th grade that are led by a dedicated team of coaches.

We believe that athletics teaches important characteristics of hard work, perseverance, sportsmanship, and teamwork.

We have over 40 athletic teams which are competing in a variety of sports for students of all ages, from intramural sports teams in the lower school to participation in SSAC (Sunshine State Athletic Conference) in our upper school. More than half of our collective student body participates in sports for the opportunity to excel beyond the classroom, learn the fundamentals of the sport and be part of a larger community to enjoy life changing experiences.
