Preschool – Elementary School

Lower Elementary Intramural Sports

We start intramural sports early at Everest because of the values they help instill. Preschool through 3rd grade students learn sportsmanship, teamwork, fitness, rule-following and fun to help jumpstart their young minds and bodies.

  • Fall: 3 on 3 Soccer
  • Fall: 4 on 4 NFL Flag Football

  • Spring: 3 on 3 Soccer
  • Spring: 4 on 4 NFL Flag Football

Upper Elementary CYO Sports

For elementary grades 4 and higher (with a few sports indicated beginning in 3rd grade), Everest participates in the Catholic Youth Organization which hosts a number of sporting leagues. This higher level competition teaches students hard work and how to deal with both winning and losing. The CYO’s mission aims to enrich families and strengthen communities across southeast Michigan through youth programs that embrace the love and example of Jesus Christ.

Elementary Events & Competitions

Academic competitions are available for students to develop intellect, excel in areas of strength, learn work ethic and measure their progress. Competition is a natural part of life and one that we believe is essential for fostering the development of the human person.

The following academic competitions are held annually in order to give Everest students the opportunity to do just that.

  • Forensics Competition (October)
  • Spelling Bee (November)
  • Catholic Schools Week Competitions (January)
