Lower School & V/VI Sports


The V/VI Athletic Program is designed to be introductory in nature by placing an emphasis on sport-specific skill development. The V/VI Program provides students with an opportunity to experience a variety of teams and individual sports in an intramural and interscholastic setting.
According to our governing body, New York State Association of Independent School (NYSAIS), V & VI athletic programs are philosophically different than Middle School Sports (VII/VIIII). "Please note that competition for students in class IV-VI are meant to include intramural activities with limited contests against other schools. Extra class experience should grow out of our intramural program and offer a modified introduction to competition." 


The Friday Sports Programs offers students in classes K-IV a gymnastics program tailored to their age group. The program meets at the end of the regular Friday school day from 2:15-3:00 pm. The gymnastics program is for girls of all abilities; the only requirement is an interest in learning more about the sport. This program is taught by members of the Physical Education Department.
