Hello and thank you for your interest in Panther Athletics!
Here at AOSE, we believe that a student who experiences a healthy mix of academics, athletics, and extracurricular activities throughout her educational career will be in a better position to be a leader in the world.
By striving to succeed on the playing field, the student is cultivating life-long skills. The student athlete is better at managing her time, and is a more accountable member of society having had experiences as a team player. We believe that a student athlete learns to win with class, and accept defeat with grace.
For well over a century, girls have proudly represented AOSE on the courts and fields. As an all-girl school, our student athletes are able to undoubtedly gain the confidence needed to lead peers on a daily basis. The sense of camaraderie and teamwork here is outstanding, and is a product of our school’s philosophy.
We would love to have you come out and visit us and check out a game! Here are some quick facts about Panther Athletics:
- We offer 10 varsity sports, and a JV level is also offered for volleyball, field hockey, basketball and lacrosse
