The Thayer Athletic Philosophy

Thayer Academy’s mission is to inspire a diverse community of students to moral, intellectual, aesthetic, and physical excellence so that each may rise to honorable achievement and contribute to the common good. The Thayer athletic philosophy is devoted to meeting the school’s mission in every way. To that end, we believe that every student should participate in physical activities in their pursuit of “physical excellence.”

The Middle and Upper School Athletic, Physical Education, and Health & Wellness requirements – comprised each year of opportunities in interscholastic athletic teams, physical education classes, and classroom components – allow students to learn, compete, and grow in mind and body. The values of team sports, physical education, and health include:

  • The experience of teamwork, competition, sportsmanship, success, and failure
  • Development of relationships, self-confidence, and physical and life skills
  • Knowledge of nutrition, fitness, and mental relaxation
  • Maturation of leadership skills, discipline, and a strong sense of self Athletic Department Staff & Coaches Contact Information
