When everyone plays, everyone wins.

Parents who worry that their children will be behind if they haven't participated in team sports at an early age will be pleasantly surprised as their children step onto the field...and their teams, after a few warm-up games, win! Because they have grown up moving freely in their bodies throughout the day, not just in gym, they now have the capabilities to adapt to all kinds of sports and succeed. And the best part? They have fun doing it.

There are no tryouts or “cuts” from teams in the middle school age bracket; the goal being to give all students the opportunity to participate in—and learn about—sports they are interested in. Our Junior-Varsity and Varsity teams participate in seasonal league play against other independent schools such as Near North Montessori, British School, and Lycée Francais in city-wide tournaments. 

We expect all our student athletes to be dignified, focused, dedicated players who conduct themselves with pride and grace in inter-scholastic conferences and in representing the school at public events.

The Middle School Teams are members of the Chicago Area Middle School (CAMS) Conference. Our High School is a full member of the Illinois High School Association (IHSA). Our High School teams are affiliated with the Chicago Prep Conference and the Metro Prep Conference.
