Physical Education & Sports

Cultivating a Lifelong Appreciation of Sport
for Fun & Fitness

Movement Matters!

Hockey_3rd-grade-1

Our students run, jump, skip, throw and catch, navigate obstacle courses, play soccer, volleyball, basketball, and hockey, scale our climbing wall, and experience yoga and dance.

Our friendly and creative coaches focus on fitness, teamwork, and perseverance through an endless variety of games and sports. We aim for engaged participation in every class and inspire all students to reach for new heights.

After-School Athletics

Volley Ball Team

In addition to the weekly physical education curriculum, upper school students can participate in co-ed, interscholastic competitions in soccer, basketball, and volleyball. An after-school tennis club and a Taekwondo Club for lower school students are regularly offered.

More about Our Sports Teams


Soccer is offered in the fall, basketball in the winter, and volleyball in the spring. Participating in these interscholastic teams affords our upper school students the opportunity to hone their skills with athletes from different splits, different grades, and those from other local independent schools. Depending on the sport, home games are played on campus or at the James Kenney Recreation Center, located within walking distance.
