How do you build a scholar athlete?
It starts in the Lower School, where the goal is improving each child's skills, maintaining health and fitness through exercise, and developing a lifelong positive attitude toward participation in physical activities.
Strong and Spirited
Competitive athletics begins in the Middle School, with combined teams of fifth and sixth graders that practice three times a week, and seventh and eighth graders that practice daily. Both groups compete interscholastically.
In the Upper School, students choose from more than 50 interscholastic sports, independent studies, and fitness classes. GFA teams are regular finalists in the FAA and New England Prep School athletic tournaments.
GFA athletes are known for their sportsmanship, their hard work in the classroom, and their team spirit.
