The Portledge Athletics Philosophy

Our students who wish to compete interscholastically in a sport get the opportunity anytime.

List of 3 frequently asked questions.

  • Lower School Philosophy

    The Lower School physical education program is designed to be inclusive, interactive, fun and progress into the secondary level of team skill development. It is critical to provide students with opportunities to develop lifelong skills essential to enhancing their quality of life while promoting an active and healthy lifestyle. Each grade level will focus on the appropriate and varying developmental stages of its students. Students will learn to lead more healthy lifestyles and will continue to develop their social and emotional, critical thinking, and problem solving skills; all centerpieces of a Portledge education. 
  • Middle School Philosophy

    At the Middle School level, the primary focus of the program is on participation through learning athletic skills, game rules, fitness, the fundamentals of team play, and building self-esteem and sportsmanship. During the course of each season, sport-specific skills will be taught, and character will be further developed. Athletic teams also begin in the Middle School years, but the goal is to provide an enjoyable experience while students begin to choose their favorite sports. 
  • Upper School Philosophy

    In the Upper School, athletics shifts to a more competitive nature while providing students with the opportunity to further their social interactions, better their lifestyle, and compete with pride for their school. For students who choose to compete in interscholastic athletics, our program allows them to gain self-confidence and to learn the importance of collaborative, team play. For students who do not choose to compete in interscholastic athletics, they will have the opportunity to enhance their fitness, and learn skills which will better their lifestyle through our Physical Education classes.
