Athletic Director

Mr. Durwin Carpenter
Athletic Director

On behalf of the Pillow Athletics Department, welcome to Pillow Academy. We are proud to have you as a Mustang!

Our athletic program is an integral part of the educational experience at PA.  Creative minds, healthy bodies, and competitive spirits are an essential part of our school philosophy. We strive for these traits to be evident on the field of play and in the classroom.

Our commitment to sports is evident as we field over 20 teams each year.  Our students have a high level of participation.   Over 70% of our students in grades 9-12 participate in at least one sport. We are often in playoffs rounds for state championships and many of our seniors have represented PA in All-Star games.

Currently, we are classified in the MAIS Class AAAAA/Class AAAA District I North  division.  This places us in competition with the biggest and best schools in our state.

PA athletes have access to top-notch facilities that include a newly-renovated gym, a football field surrounded by an all-weather track, practice areas, soccer field, a softball field, a baseball field, and a top-notch weight room. PA also provides top coaches in each sport as well as strength/conditioning coaches and student managers.

Pillow encourages all parents to become involved with our Mustang Booster Club. The Booster Club provides much support for athletes and our facilities.

Our athletic handbook contains many rules and regulations governing our athletes.  Each student athlete is given a handbook at the beginning of school year.  The handbook is also on our website.

The Pillow Academy Athletic Department strives to uphold the high ideals of success in academics, self-discipline, sportsmanship, and morality.  Our goal is for each and every student to succeed at the highest levels – both academically and athletically.
