At Hackley, we believe our fields and courts are among our most important “classrooms.”
Students begin participating in team sports in the seventh grade as part of the Middle School physical education program. The Middle School experience provides students a new way to explore Hackley’s commitment to “unreserved effort,” teaching skills while emphasizing the value of teamwork, collaboration, mutual respect, and sportsmanship.
In Upper School, students have the option to participate in athletics at the JV and Varsity level during one, two, or three seasons each year. On average, 84% of Hackley Upper School students participate in at least one team sport.
