Students in grades 6-12 participate in a number of sports, including:

* Cross Country

* NYO (Native Youth Olympics)

The school is named after the oldest man in the village, John 'Ayagina'ar' Phillip, Sr.  He was also one of the first teachers in Kong, and helped start the first school in the village.

Once in JH/HS, our students are encouraged to participate in programs like ANSEP (Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program), Speech, Excell Programs, Robotics, Art Fair, iDida Contest, Ready Academy, and other camps/programs offered by the district.  

We always encourage our students to follow their passions and try to expose them to as many opportunities as we can.
