    Our Vision
    The Orange Athletic Department's expectation is to reach the highest level of success within the classroom and all of its sports programs. This will provide student-athletes with the opportunity to enhance their athletic abilities, as well as their academic success. Our vision is that our sports programs will be considered an asset to the academic mission of the school and will enhance all aspects of our school culture. Ultimately, we envision an athletic department where all of its participants, including students, parents, coaches, teachers, administrators, and community, can be proud of its ability to promote lifelong personal and community wellness.
     Our Mission

    The mission of the Orange High School Athletic Department is to foster academic and athletic achievement in our student activities, by emphasizing the importance of sacrifice, self-discipline, and dedication to achieving goals. Our purpose is to provide competitive athletic programs that represent Orange High School in an impeccable manner and provide student-athletes the opportunity to develop physically, mentally, ethically and socially. In doing so, the Athletic Department will provide coaching of the finest quality, facilities that provide excellent venues for safe and high caliber competition, as well as academic assistance to enhance academic success. Our main objective is to assist young men and women in their educational pursuits to the fullest through support, guidance and motivational programs. This assistance is intended to provide maximum opportunity for our student-athletes to reach their fullest potential.

     Conduct

     Student-athlete participation in the Orange Athletic Department is a privilege, not a right. The Orange Board of Education expects all of its students to lead by example when representing their school community. Student-athletes should dress, act and conduct themselves in a way that reflects a positive image for their school community. All student-athletes are expected to display positive and appropriate behavior towards administrators, teachers, coaches, peers, opponents, and teammates.
