Faith Academy extracurricular sports grow with our students. Elementary students are involved in parent-run and club teams for soccer, basketball, and baseball. Occasional opportunities to compete with other schools exist in track and swim meets as well.
The middle school program expands with school-sponsored intramurals in soccer, basketball, volleyball, and rugby. Almost two-thirds of the middle school students are involved in intramurals for at least one sport. Parent-run sports are also organized in middle school.
The Faith Academy sports program culminates with interscholastic varsity sports at the high school level. During the school year, three seasons of varsity sports are available as an outlet for competition and self-improvement. First season (Aug-Oct) sports: cross country, volleyball, and soccer. Second season (Nov-Feb) sports: tennis, rugby, and basketball. Third season (Feb-April) sports: track and field. Faith Academy participates in both local and international tournaments, and most of the sports teams travel internationally to compete with other Christian schools throughout Asia.
Basketball is a second season sport, running from November to February. Faith participates in three local tournaments, ISSA (InterScholastic Sports Association), and MMBL (Metro Manila Basketball League ) Mansac. Faith Academy hosts the Hardeman Basketball Tourney in January and plays the culminating tournament – Asia Christian School Conference – in February.
The Varsity basketball boys finished second in ISSA and won the Hardeman tournament in the 2014-15 school year.

Cross-country is an individual as well as a team sport. Individually, each runner attempts to run his or her best time on a particular running course; as a team the top five individual runners score, with the sixth and seventh runners also often contributing to the overall team score. Boy’s races are 5K (3.1 miles) in length; girls races are typically 3.2K in length (a little under 2 miles).
