There is a grand tradition of excellence in athletics at Buckley. As part of our belief that boys should be full participants in the elementary education experience, athletics are a core part of our curriculum. Every boy in Classes I-IX plays three seasons of sports. Yes, we teach fundamental athletic skills in the Lower and Middle Schools and field competitive teams in the Upper School, but the focus of the program is on building young men who value physical fitness and healthy living and who are model teammates and sportsmen.
