California Military Institute (CMI Athletic Program dynamically supports the mission of the school. The emphasis on excellence in leadership and character building sets us apart from other institutions. I believe through athletics we can accomplish academic excellence, a positive school environment, and student growth.
CMI will promote interscholastic athletics that provides lifelong learning opportunities to student-athletes while enhancing their achievement of educational goals. Our role is to teach the values of teamwork, commitment, sportsmanship, pride, work ethic, respect, responsibility, and a positive attitude. It is our vision that through our middle and high school sports, our student athletes will adopt these values and develop a positive winning attitude that will carry them through their lives.
- Provide each CMI athlete with the opportunity to develop their individual skill.
- Provide the opportunity for CMI athletes to learn how to function as a member of a team.
- Develop the qualities of good sportsmanship, respect and integrity within each individual.
- Teach CMI athletes to accept victory or defeat in a gracious manner.

CMI considers participation in athletics to be an integral part of the overall educational experience. Athletics provides opportunities for physical, mental, emotional, and social development. The competition of CMI Athletics is viewed as a valuable experience. Our athletic programs will challenge each CMI athlete to strive for excellence, help student-athletes discover their physical strengths and will require each athlete to work cooperatively as a member of a team. Winning will be our goal in the pursuit of excellence, the principles of good sportsmanship and enjoyment of competition will take precedence at all times.
