Mascot

Athlos Triton MascotWe're excited to introduce our mascot, the Athlos Tritons! The Athlos Tritons mascot was chosen by the founding board of Athlos Academy of Jefferson Parish. The Triton name was chosen in part because of its association with Greek mythology (just like the name 'Athlos') as well as the school's proximity to the ocean.
 

Triton, a messenger of the sea, was the son of Poseidon and Amphitrite. Like his father, Triton was a mighty and fierce sea warrior that possessed powerful control of the ocean. Triton has been known for having athletic abilities and can be seen with a 3-prong spear called a trident.
