At Roxbury Latin, we adhere to the classical precept mens sana in corpore sano and believe that physical and mental fitness go hand in hand. Our program teaches boys good sportsmanship and the fundamental skills and strategies necessary to compete in interscholastic athletic contests. Boys learn to work and sacrifice cooperatively and to step outside their personal ambition to serve the greater good. Our athletes are smart and well coached, mostly by full-time faculty, and they compete hard.
Boys learn to work and sacrifice cooperatively and to step outside their personal ambition to serve the greater good.
Younger boys (in Grades 7-9) are required to participate in athletics for two seasons; older boys have the option of varsity or junior varsity team play or an independent physical education program of their choice. Our teams have enjoyed considerable success in the Independent School League (ISL).
