What We Learn on the Playing Field
In a well-balanced education, training the body is equally as important as cultivating the mind and heart. At The Stony Brook School we seek to educate the whole student. We feel that athletics are co-curricular, not extra-curricular, and we require that all students take part in at least two of the three athletic seasons.
In winning and losing, leading and following, our scholar athletes gain practical experience and learn important lessons from the service to others that comes with being part of a successful team. We challenge our students to play hard, win and lose with grace, and discover the joys of teamwork and competition.
The Stony Brook School competes in the New York State Public High School Athletic Association, in which, despite our small size, we have achieved a high level of success, winning county, regional, and state championships. Many of our athletes continue their sport at the college level.
Each fall, winter, and spring season, the boys and girls on these teams make us all proud.
