Challenging, engaging, and developmentally appropriate, the School’s athletic program offers competitive and noncompetitive options for US students and is anchored by our core values and enduring skills.

While Preschool and Prekindergarten students do not attend formal physical education classes, gross motor activities are an integral part of every school day. Students are introduced to physical education classes in Kindergarten, attending Sports class twice per week, where they learn the fundamentals of sport-specific activities, gameplay, and sportsmanship.

Lower School students are introduced to more sport-specific games as they develop confidence, quick thinking, spatial awareness, and an understanding of competition. These First through Fourth Graders attend Sports class three times per week, where the development of locomotor skills is emphasized, culminating in the end-of-year President’s Fitness Challenge.

Upper School students participate in our interscholastic sports program. Faculty coaches emphasize teamwork, sportsmanship, leadership, and perseverance. Teams challenge neighboring independent schools in a variety of athletics, including:

Fall Interscholastic Sports

  • Girls, Boys, and Coed Soccer
  • Girls and Boys Cross Country

Winter Interscholastic Sports

  • Girls and Boys Basketball
  • Fitness

Spring Interscholastic Sports

  • Coed Ultimate Frisbee
  • Girls and Boys Tennis

Students in Sixth through Eighth Grades are required to participate in interscholastic sports each season. Fall Cross Country is also open to students in Third through Fifth Grades.
