Sports

As one of the four pillars at Seattle Academy, Athletics are an integral part of the total school program and student experience. Providing invaluable experiences beyond the classroom, Athletics create community while contributing to the personal growth and education of our students. Lifelong lessons are learned through athletics such as sportsmanship, teamwork, the benefits of hard work, and gracefully navigating both winning and losing. 

Seattle Academy's inclusive Athletics program develops athletic skill in a natural and individualized progression, which allows athletes of all levels to participate fully. We have a no-cut participation policy--meaning that no student is turned away because they lack experience or ability--and we also have top-level teams that win state championships. In our program, we have students trying a sport for the first time, and we have league all-stars and coaches of the year in virtually all sports. This emphasis on both participation and excellence builds an inclusive community and helps teach the school's Core Values. We believe that by participating in sports, student-athletes learn important lessons about Trust, Respect, Integrity, and Responsibility. This philosophy, along with an impressive variety of sports offered each season, provides a wide range of opportunities and competitive levels in both the Middle and Upper School programs.
