Berks Christian School (Birdsboro, PA) and West-Mont Christian Academy (Pottstown, PA) are combining athletic programs under their newly formed Alliance Christian School District. While both campuses will continue to operate under their original names, students from both locations play under the new name: the Alliance Christian Gryphons. The new district name Alliance 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 believes that the combination of our two campuses will lead to a number of positive outcomes for our students who play sports. The partnership will build a stronger athletic program while still offering the opportunity for participation to students from both campuses.
