We build rapport with our student athletes creating an atmosphere for success, teaching the proper values, skills and strategies. A love of activity starts with the Physical Education program, which begins in Pre-K. Students then progress to Lower School Intramurals, then Middle School Sports and eventually varsity-level competition in the Upper School. Saint Edward’s School fields 36 teams in 18 sports and enjoys an enviable record of success, and our no-cut philosophy ensures that everyone has a chance to discover and play. Athletes with a range of abilities at all levels find opportunities to advance their skills and compete to their full potential.
