With over half of all students competing in at least one interscholastic sport, the athletics department at Westminster is growing. Our first priority when it comes to athletics is hiring the finest instructors. In hiring coaches, we look for men and women who love God, excel at coaching, are knowledgeable in their sport, love kids and understand the role sports play in molding godly character through discipline, teamwork, and fair play. Our athletic department takes the time to invest in each and every athlete with a focus on character building, sportsmanship, and discipleship.

Westminster Academy participates in the Shelby 78, TSSAA, and the PAA leagues.

Go Defenders!

The school mascot at Westminster is the Defender. By God’s grace we are equipping followers of Christ to defend their faith in God. Scripture teaches us that we are in a spiritual battle and are fighting a real enemy, so we are “defenders” of the faith.

Purple & Gold

Purple and gold are Westminster’s school colors. Purple is the color of royalty and we are robed in the righteousness of Christ as his redeemed children. Gold depicts the end result of God’s sanctifying work in us as we are made pure in Christ.
