Physical Education & Athletics

The Middle School physical education program at Hackley School has been crafted to emphasize the healthy development of physical, social, and emotional growth. Students transition to participating in individual and team sports while also continuing the development of complex athletic skills that challenge students to act with integrity and courage as members of a team. 
The Middle School physical education program is intended to foster the development of important character traits such as participation, cooperation, leadership, sportsmanship, and most of all respect for self and others.

Fifth and sixth grade students continue to develop strategies for lifelong physical activity and wellness for themselves and others in their communities.

Seventh and eighth graders participate in interscholastic sports throughout the school year to fulfill their physical education requirement as well as to prepare them for junior varsity and varsity athletics should they decide to pursue those options in Upper School.

At Hackley, we also take advantage of our campus resources, including the multiple gymnasiums and indoor spaces, outdoor fields, playgrounds, and the indoor pool.
