With a record 25 championships in the country’s most competitive lacrosse conference and multiple students earning Division I scholarships each year in a variety of sports, St. Paul’s provides opportunity for elite athletes to compete at the highest levels.
But with 47 teams in 14 different sports, there is a place for every student. We believe participation in athletics is important for every student, regardless of ability level. Because valuable lessons – discipline, responsibility, sportsmanship, self-confidence, and hard work – are sometimes more easily taught on the playing field than in the classroom.
Teaching faculty coach our student-athletes, and St. Paul's discourages boys from specializing in one particular sport, instead encouraging them to vary their athletic experiences.
Good sportsmanship, displayed by participants and fans alike, is highly valued and an expectation at St. Paul's. The manner in which teams win or lose reflects the values the School holds closely.
