The Loma Linda Academy Athletic Department is guided by the following mission and philosophy:
The mission of LLA is to foster the development of a Christ-like character through teamwork, sportsmanship, integrity, honesty, and respect.
Athletics is an important part of the school program but it needs to be in harmony with the school's mission and goals. It should not dominate but rather should complement the students full learning experience. Athletics gives the practical lab opportunity for character building in ways that are unique for students in an Adventist school. In addition to promoting quality academics, Athletics strives to strengthen the integrity of our students and adults by promoting the concepts of teamwork, sportsmanship, honesty, and respect. These priorities advance the highest principles of character, trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and good citizenship.
*** Sports physicals for student athletes will take place Sunday, August 18 from 9am-Noon on the Second Floor of the LLU Book Store next door to the market. Cost is $10. A parent must attend the athlete.
