Upper School Program
In the Upper School, the Athletic Department works with individual players to help them find balance among academic, artistic, and athletic responsibilities. Practices and games are scheduled to not conflict with academic classes, and students must balance the demands of a competitive athletic program and their challenging academic schedule.
The graduation requirement is 2 credits, ½ credit for each semester or season, by taking physical education or dance classes or participating on interscholastic teams in Upper School; students are required to take Fundamentals of P.E. by the end of grade 10. Students must also pass a swimming competency test by the end of the first semester of the senior year.
