Mount Calvary Christian School believes all that is done in life should be pleasing to God. Performing to one’s best for the benefit of the team and playing with actions pleasing to Christ are of utmost importance. Coaches teach the Christian athlete how to learn to deal with winning, losing, and the pressures of athletics, in a manner that is pleasing to God. We believe the team is more important than one individual. The Christian education difference can be seen in action at Mount Calvary Christian School on the fields and courts.

Charger Field is the home of MCCS soccer matches and MCC Upward Football. Student-Athletes enjoy playing night matches at home instead of traditional afternoon games because of larger, more vocal crowds. An underground irrigation system provides student athletes with a safe and highly competitive playing surface. A 12×6 scoreboard update with arched “Mount Calvary” sign was added in 2018. In 2019 a pressbox and concessions stand update was completed and include bathroom facilities close to the field as well as in indoor, glass enclosed eating area.
Charger Gymnasium is the home of all MCCS indoor contests. The 9,000 sq. ft. gymnasium was constructed as part of the Family Life Center Project in 1998. The facility hosts a variety of events throughout the year including: Upward Celebrations, Club Sports teams, Sportsman’s Banquets, the MCCS Annual Auction, Fine Arts Events and indoor practices for MCCS athletics. A large mural of a Charger bursting through the wall is located on the Southern wall. The gymnasium floor was refinished and repainted in the summer of 2016 through the generosity of the MCCS community. The project included lightening the color of the floor, repainting all game lines, and incorporating the school’s interlocking MC design on center court.
In The Net Complex
In the Net Sports Complex has hosted many of MCCS’s home baseball games since 2009. Located in Palmyra, PA, this complex also boasts several turf fields. Charger Athletics is thankful to the donors who help make using this location a possibility.
Charger Weight Room
Relocated to a new, on-campus facility in 2019, the school weight room is an added improvement to Mount Calvary’s Athletic and Health program. Students follow an athlete-specific workout plan that is monitored by coaches and athletic personnel. The program is a fully integrated elective in the physical education program for students in grades 7-12.
