Physical Education: All students at St. Paul’s School enjoy physical education instruction once or twice a week. This includes students in pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade. As in other curriculum areas, the physical education program at St. Paul’s is developmental. Students build new skills each year. Lifetime physical education is the focus of the program. The instructor’s goal is to assist students in finding fun and exciting ways to exercise for a lifetime of good health. Fun, safety and good sportsmanship are key components of the physical education program. St. Paul’s School physical education program also includes six Friday’s of winter activities from January through March which offer the choice of downhill skiing or snowboarding at Burke Mountain or other activities including skating, swimming, sliding or bowling.
Interscholastic Sports: St. Paul’s School fields boys, girls, or sometimes co-ed teams in three sports: Soccer, Basketball and track. Students in grades 5-8 are eligible to participate in these activities provided that they maintain good grades and meet standards for appropriate behavior in all their classes. Many students participate in town or regional sports programs as well, and the school does communicate with families about these opportunities. Health, safety and good sportsmanship are emphasized in all competitive sports programs.
