Its motto is “Think and Do.” Notable alumni include actor Zach Galifianakis, CEO of SAS Institute James Goodnight, Former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, Former U.S. Senator John Edwards, actress Jill Wagner, basketball player Dennis Smith Jr., and Olympic gold medalist and swimmer Cullen Andrew Jones.

Sports offered include men’s baseball, basketball, football, cross country and wrestling, and women’s basketball, cross country, golf, gymnastics and soccer.
