High School Campus Track & Field
Extra and co-curricular activities are in integral component to educating the whole student. Female athletes who attend the high school have the opportunity to participate in 11 sports across three seasons: basketball, cross country, field hockey, golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball, swimming/diving, tennis, track & field, and volleyball. Nearly 75% of all Sion high school students participate in one or more competitive student activities. When Sion students graduate from our high school, five Sion students on average matriculate with significant scholarship opportunities to collegiate level athletic programs each year.
As Sion currently does not have a track facility to provide the necessary outdoor practicing facilities, our student athletes must either run through the high school adjacent neighborhood streets or be transported to another local private school’s facilities. The softball outfield area is also in poor condition and additional grading is required. At this time, Sion is one of the only private high schools in Kansas City that does not have updated athletic facilities including a quality turf field and eight-lane track. This leaves Sion student athletes at a disadvantage, as well as seriously affecting our ability to continue to attract and retain top scholar athletes.
To meet necessary recruitment and enrollment expectations of current and prospective families, Sion’s Board of Trustees and Administration have determined that a 21st century outdoor Athletic Complex, including an all-weather synthetic track, turf field for soccer, field hockey and lacrosse with an improved softball and practice field, will complete the high school sports facility enhancements.
With the rising construction cost for facilities from sports venues to performing arts auditoriums, national trends for 21st century educational institutions show that local community partnerships support financial sustainability and enhance the experience for all involved. These partnerships provide additional educational opportunities for all involved organizations. Sion is considering a partnership with Avila University as well as other urban K-12 schools who need access to outdoor sport facilities. Facility use partnerships mean that an outdoor Athletic Complex could be used more frequently.

Periodically, it is essential to make a substantial investment in our grade school and high school campus physical plants. Capital improvements can result from a growth in our enrollment, expansion in curriculum and/or preservation of our current facilities. These improvements are not funded through the operating budget but require addition support from the community through capital investment fundraising.
