Philosophy

Mens sana in corpore sano.

Christianity is unique in its affirmation of the goodness of material creation especially the goodness of the human body, which is the" Temple of The Holy Spirit" and thus should be treated with respect and care. At Christendom, the athletic program seeks to complement the College's higher goal of the moral and intellectual perfection of man.

As a member of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA), Christendom fields intercollegiate teams in both men and women's soccer and basketball as well as men's rugby and women's volleyball. In addition, the Crusaders are members of the Shenandoah-Chesapeake Conference (SCC). Other colleges participating in the SCC are Roanoke, Patrick Henry, and Washington Bible. The athletic department maintains facilities and equipment to support a variety of student interests, such as tennis, racquetball, handball, soccer, basketball, volleyball, baseball, softball, weightlifting, and archery.

Additionally, the College has a number of canoes and kayaks for students to use on the Shenandoah River. Plans are currently underway to establish a crew program, which would make use of the beautiful Shenandoah River that adjoins the campus.
