Pitt County Schools is proud of its rich athletic past, exciting present, and promising future. Our teams consistently capture conference, regional and state championships. The athletic programs strive to provide our student-athletes with an enjoyable and challenging athletic environment which emphasizes the attainment of both physical skills and strong character development, as well as encouraging the lifelong learning process. These programs aim to develop: excellent sportsmanship, a strong work ethic, a spirit of cooperation, leadership skills, and important personal character traits. All student-athletes must be in good academic standing and adhere to county and state regulations in academics, attendance and residency.
The school district offers 10 sports at the middle school level and 15 for high school students (not all of the high schools offer all sports). Athletic programs in Pitt County Schools emphasize academic success in the classroom, student attendance in school and good sportsmanship and citizenship on and off the field.
