Athletics are an important part of life at Altamont.
More than half of Altamont's student body competes on one or more athletic teams.
We recognize that many of the traits and skills necessary for athletic success—commitment, teamwork, resilience, communication, perseverance—also are fundamental for success in life. Students often develop important aspects of their leadership abilities on the playing field.
At Altamont, competitive athletics begin in 5th grade, with an emphasis on the team experience, skill development, fair play, and healthy competition. Starting in 7th grade, students can compete on our junior varsity and varsity teams. Altamont teams have a tradition of success playing public and private schools in the Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA).

The Middle School athletics program emphasizes participation. A no-cut policy allows students to play any number of sports, determining which one(s) appeal to them, and in which sport(s) they excel.
All students in 7th grade and above are eligible to participate in AHSAA-sanctioned sports at the school. Fifth and 6th graders participate in the Birmingham Regional Independent Athletic Association (BRIAA).
Middle school athletic offerings depend on participation. We have traditionally fielded teams in the following sports:Cross Country (boys and girls grades 5-8)
Volleyball (7th/8th girls in the fall, 5th/6th co-ed in the spring)
Basketball (boys and girls grades 5-8)
Soccer (boys and girls grades 5-8)
