Lion Athletics

Stand Out

Physical fitness, and a sense of belonging, are essential to boys’ development.  Our athletic program strives to improve students’ strength and conditioning as they enjoy practicing and performing together as teammates.  We encourage boys to engage fully in all aspects of school life, to include playing on at least two teams during the three interscholastic seasons. (Some exceptions occur.) Our coaches develop players’ skills and teach them about leadership.  Our focus is on positive participation and sportsmanship.  Our goal is for young men to conduct themselves like champions, to grow in confidence through the camaraderie of spirited competition.  We play sports well – to  help boys become better men.

New Athletic Center Coming Soon

Construction has been going well on the newest facility on campus, The Phelps Center. Work is slated to be finished by the end of July. Ribbon cutting information will be coming soon. With 22,500 square feet under air, The Phelps Center will function as a multi-purpose facility serving as home to a 500-seat competition gymnasium, able to be separated into three courts. Other highlights include locker and meeting rooms, common area, public restrooms, concessions, office space, and storage. The Phelps School capital campaign is in full swing, with hopes of raising $5 million to support this grand endeavor.
