The Athletics Program teaches teamwork, commitment, accountability, and time management. Generating a sense of community among teammates and the entire school, students are encouraged to support different sports teams, challenged to build new skills, and inspired to value their experiences.
In a world where instant gratification has become the norm, our athletic program challenges each athlete to work for the long-term goal of success. Success doesn't come from a winning season; success comes from individuals coming together to form one unit.
The central philosophical themes of Middle School athletics are participation and discovery. Each Middle School student is expected to participate in a sport each season, and this expectation results in exploration and discovery--of new skills, unexpected affinities, and satisfying accomplishments. Middle School athletes are strongly encouraged and supported throughout the process of trying something new, so that exploration and discovery become familiar and welcome experiences. Middle School sports include:
Fielding 16 varsity sports and 36 total teams, our Upper School athletes understand the importance of determination. Every student has the opportunity to play a sport--no matter his or her skill level. With its current Upper School population, the school maintains an 85 percent student participation rate for athletics.
