Waxahachie Preparatory Academy participates in athletics as a member of the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) in Division 1A. While WPA feels that athletics is a big part of the student’s social development, academics is strongly stressed for sports participation. Coaches stress hard work, sportsmanship, honesty, teamwork, total participation of each athlete and a Christian attitude at all times as we seek to glorify God with the physical gifts He has given us. A strong sense of mentorship is used by each coach as he or she works with the athletes in their chosen sport, as well as the student body of WPA.
WPA competes in accordance with the TAPPS motto of “COMPETITION WITH HONOR.”
