“We see extracurricular activities, including athletics, as ways of extending the apostolate of Christian education outside the classroom. These activities reflect and reinforce the philosophy and policies of the school. In their roles as moderators and coaches, teachers have additional opportunities to influence the lives of students. They guide students and provide personal attention in ways that they may not be able to in usual classroom situations.”Educational Mission & Ministry New Orleans Province of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart
