Athletics Core Values

The Shelton High School Athletic program is one that reflects the needs and purposes of our student body and community by maintaining a strong sense of pride, tradition, excellence and overall student development.  This is done through a balance of healthy competition, physical training and educational scholarship.  In pursuit of this objective, we recognize the importance of academic responsibility, community service, and the ideals of good sportsmanship.
