Patrick Henry HS-Our Philosophy

Patrick Henry HS-Our Philosophy

We believe a sound athletic philosophy is an integral part of the total educational experience and should be centered on the CIF Victory with Honor Program, and Six Pillars of Character. (Respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, caring and citizenship).

We believe high school athletics create a positive and challenging experience that will assist in the physical, social, intellectual, and emotional well-being of every participating student-athlete.

We believe in the educational power of the growth mindset. The mindset empowers the student-athlete to see the benefit of taking risks and confronting challenge with the understanding that learning is achieved through momentary failure as much as success.

At our core we are looking to cultivate leadership among our student-athletes.
ALL student-athletes.
From the senior starter to the last player on the depth chart we want to instill the confidence in them that they all have a powerful role on the team. The leadership they exhibit between the lines MUST be exhibited between the first and last bells during the school day.
 These are the core principles that are shared by all coaches and the foundational expectation of all student-athletes. This is Patriot Athletics.

The Athletics Department coaches and staff are proud of the traditions that have been established over the years. As Patrick Henry High School athletes, you are part of that rich tradition. Together we are moving Patriot Athletics to a bold new era, building an incredible legacy! Go Patriots!
