At Athenian, we develop student-athletes who display good sportsmanship, are positive role models, and are committed to their school, teammates, and coaches. The Athenian coaching staff stresses team first over individual achievement and promotes overall team success and values. This results in strong social bonds across grade levels that often persist beyond the high school years. The Athenian School recognizes that its interscholastic athletic program is an integral part of the total education program. In addition to athletic skill development, we instill in our athletes attitudes and behaviors that reflect the ideals of citizenship, sportsmanship and cooperation, as well as building self-discipline and self-esteem. Students have fun playing sports at Athenian, so much so that 80 percent of our Upper School student body participates in at least one sport.
