Athletics

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

EARLY CHILDHOOD ATHLETICS
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 ATHLETICS
Lower School (LS) students are introduced to more sport-specific games, developing 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 ATHLETICS
Upper School students participate in our interscholastic sports program. Faculty coaches model and emphasize teamwork, sportsmanship, leadership, and perseverance. Student-athletes proudly don garnet and gray uniforms, forging fast friendships with teammates and representing SPS as the School challenges neighboring independent school rivals 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 Grade are required to participate in interscholastic sports each season, as it is in lieu of any physical education classes during the school day. Cross Country is open to Fifth Grade and LS students.
