Middle School Athletics

The Middle School athletics program provides an introduction to interscholastic sports. Coaches focus on skills development, fitness, and the enjoyment and responsibilities of being on a team. Demonstrating the ability to overcome self-imposed limitations, rising higher in thought and action, and facing challenges with conviction—all vital components of a Principia education—are some of the lessons Middle School athletes learn.

Physical education is included in the Middle School academic curriculum through PE sessions twice a week, as well as through the Principia Adventure program.

In PE, fundamental movement skills developed in earlier years are applied as activity- and sport-specific motor skills in a wide variety of settings. A strong focus is placed on fitness, and the curriculum also includes dance and aquatics.

Principia Adventure takes advantage of our on-campus outdoor climbing wall and ropes course, as well as offering biking instruction. The program helps students practice interpersonal and decision-making skills, goal setting, appropriate risk taking, and problem solving—while developing movement, coordination, and basic climbing and biking skills.
