Athletic Director's Welcome

Athletics is an integral and required part of the overall Buckley school experience. In the lower grades the emphasis is to streamline the physical education program into meaningful athletic experiences for our students. In the upper school students participate in interscholastic sports that promote teamwork, leadership and sportsmanship. Overall the goal of athletics is to promote lifelong fitness in a supportive caring environment. 
The athletics program at Buckley is an extension of the general classroom and reflects the school’s valued traditions of fair play, cooperation, sportsmanship, and the love of the game. Talented, experienced, and motivated coaches do a fantastic job of enhancing the educational experience of promoting self-discipline, respect, communication skills, and collaboration. 
Being a student athlete at Buckley is an integral part of the growth that enables each child to flourish at Buckley and beyond. 
We hope to see you at many of our games cheering for our Buckley Bulldogs. Go Bulldogs!
