Starkville Academy sets high standards when it comes to its school and those that attend. The expectations do not stop when the books close as the same standards are expected of the Volunteer athletes anytime they put on the orange and blue.
“The first thing I want in our athletic program is for us to reflect what our school means and what it stands for,” SA Athletic Director and girls basketball coach Glenn Schmidt said. “I want us to be well respected young people and coaches who carry out the mission of the school. We have that in a group of hard working coaches and in some cases volunteer coaches, who are spending the extra time and effort to give the youngsters extra opportunities to improve. 
“Next, we want to win at Starkville Academy. When we don’t win, we want to be able to say we’ve done our best, we were prepared and we are respected when we walk off the field, court or the diamond.”
