Our athletic program is guided by the school’s statement of philosophy that there is that of God in everyone. We encourage our student-athletes to continue to cultivate the principles valued by the school community. Among these are truthfulness, simplicity, self-discipline, the resolution of differences without violence, respect for others and oneself.
Our athletic program stresses participation and encourages all student-athletes to develop their capabilities to the fullest extent possible.
We value excellence in each sport, and we aim to field successful teams that are competitive within the Friends Schools League and comparable non-league schools.
