Athletics is a vital part of the extracurricular experience of our students at Starkville Academy. The Athletic Department is committed to providing a wide variety of competitive interscholastic sports teams for its student body, while embracing the school's mission. Starkville Academy's athletic program provides a level of competition appropriate to the age, development, ability and interest of all its students. Starkville Academy has a rich tradition of excellence throughout its athletic program. Volunteer teams compete in the Midsouth Association of Independent Schools in Class AAAAA for football and AAAA for all other sports.
