Berks Christian School (Birdsboro, PA) and West-Mont Christian Academy (Pottstown, PA) operate a combined athletic program as the Alliance Christian Gryphons. The name represents the past & future collaborations between the two campuses, while the mascot & logo honors the heritage of both schools: the black & gold of WCA’s Wings added to the maroon & gold Lions of BCS naturally fit together into the mythological Gryphon. This half eagle half lion creation was adopted by some Christians as an icon pointing to Jesus’ nature as fully human (represented by the land creature lion) and fully divine (represented by the airborne wings) and was often used in medieval heraldry to indicate a combination of intelligence and strength. ACSD Athletics leads to a number of positive outcomes for our students who play sports and the partnership builds a stronger athletic program while still offering the opportunity for participation to students from both campuses.
Combining BCS & WCA students allows us to confidently field teams with full rosters as we compete within our league (CCAC) and PIAA District 3.
Higher participation numbers allow us to add JV and B teams, giving 5th-12th graders from both campuses opportunities to play at their skill level.
Our district model allows us to offer stronger sports options, coaching, facilities, uniforms,
and gear while being financially responsible.
