Athletics play an essential role in the Lawrence School community, whether students are active participants or general supporters of the program. On average, more than 70% of students in grades 7–12 represent Lawrence in at least one sport.
Dedicated coaches, most of whom are faculty members, make the athletic experience a time of learning and growth for all athletes. The coaching staff emphasizes fundamental technical, tactical, and emotional skills needed to succeed while reinforcing positive values and social competencies such as perseverance, time management, and ethical judgment. Participants are able to apply these invaluable life lessons on and off the playing fields, during their time at Lawrence and beyond.
Athletes learn that the key to a successful season in any sport is found behind the win/loss column—not just points, times, or runs, but a higher quality of play and a greater appreciation of themselves and others. As part of a team, students learn cooperation and self-discipline, coupled with the opportunity to test oneself and break through barriers and limitations.
Lawrence students are never ineligible to participate in sports due to academic concerns.
The major objective of the athletics program is to provide opportunities for student athletes to develop positive habits and attitudes. Lawrence students learn the lifelong value of involvement in sports, the values of good sportsmanship, personal commitment, and teamwork.
In education, one size clearly does not fit all.
