Carroll County Public Schools is committed to the belief that interscholastic activities are basic to sound educational principles of secondary education. Activities are a social force which teach values/achievement by providing a mechanism for student physical, psychological and emotional growth, which may not be found in similar form and circumstances in the classroom curriculum and are at once concurrent and concomitant with, and entirely supportive of student intellectual/cognitive development achieved in the education environment.

Participation in activities offers or reinforces responsible social processes. Additionally, behind the school environment, activities provide an essential means for students to contribute to the immediate and broader welfare of the community to which they belong and from which they derive benefits. Educational experiences gained through activities programs are opportunities to learn, promote and reinforce the elements that influence students to become productive citizens in a democratic society. Productive citizenship may be demonstrated through accepting responsibility self-worth, sportsmanship, integrity, fairness, optimism, self-sacrifice-- placing the welfare of others ahead of self acceptance of others regardless of abilities or background dignity, self-respect/discipline and thinking independently while having a commitment to group or collective goals which go beyond winning.
