Athlete of the Month


Athletics Hall of Fame

Since its inception in 1894, Culver has been blessed with a long line of graduates who have distinguished themselves as athletes at Culver, and later served as ambassadors for athletic excellence in the United States and around the world.  During Culver's Centennial year (1994), we sought to pay special tribute to those alumni, alumnae, and coaches who have made unusually significant contributions to athletics at Culver, and beyond, by establishing The Culver Academies Athletic Hall of Fame.

“I believe that the great value of athletics lies in keeping the student body physically fit. I know of no place, with the possible exception of the United States Military Academy, where the athletic program is handled as well or where they get the results that they do at Culver.” - Knute Rockne, University of Notre Dame Football Coach, at the dedication of the Culver Recreation Building April 21, 1924
