On Thursday, July 7, 2022, nearly 100 people attended an informational meeting to learn about the return of athletics to Paseo Academy of Fine and Performing Arts.
 

KCPS is excited to announce that Paseo Academy students will soon be able to play sports as Pirates! 

“The Department of Athletics is excited to welcome Paseo Academy back to having sports,” KCPS Athletic Director Lee Meyers said. “We’ll be offering volleyball, soccer, basketball, cross country and track this year.” 

“Previously, Paseo students were able to compete on other KCPS teams, but many did not want to play for other schools,” said Interim Principal Dr. Keyona Powell. “Academics, art and athletics are the winning combination. I can't want to see how adding sports positively impacts the school culture and community as a whole.” 

Paseo students interested in playing sports should fill out this online form. For more information, email Wesley Stammers (middle school) or Ben Suber (high school).
