gs_athleticsAs a school focused on academics and centered on preparing students to compete with students from competitive, urban education systems once they get to college, it is important for us to make sure that students have an opportunity to compete in athletics. Students need the opportunity to learn the valuable life lessons that come from participation in sports and gain valuable leadership and interpersonal skills. Gray Stone is a member of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association which is a member of the National Federation of State High School Associations.  These organizations as well as conference affiliations provide the governance and rules for athletic competition.
