The athletics program encourages and empowers students to strive for excellence in leadership, sportspersonship, and interpersonal skills, and teaches them that the integrity they develop in sport can carry over to other aspects of their lives.
We provide opportunities for all students to participate, and this openness is one reason athletics is a core component of Catlin Gabel culture. In a typical academic year, 80% of Middle School students and 75% of Upper School Students participate in at least one sport.
We strive to foster a positive attitude and healthy lifestyle that will help students succeed in many pursuits. We do not condone "winning at all cost," but we do encourage a highly competitive attitude within the athletic program and take great pride in winning.
Our coaches are teachers, role models, and a source of inspiration and support. And they're integral to what a student takes away from their time playing sports as an Eagle. Just as Catlin Gabel has high academic expectations, our athletics program teaches life lessons and builds skills while expecting the very best. We offer each student the opportunity to experience growth, accomplishment, and success at his or her skill level.
