The Program | Athletics

The Seattle Academy athletics department teaches students how to commit and strive, and how to win and lose gracefully with emotional maturity—all lessons that prepare students to do well in society. We emphasize the development of athletic skills in a natural and individualized progression, which allows athletes of all levels to participate fully and benefit from involvement in team sports.W41b Athl OV Rv2
