The Heathwood Hall Episcopal School community cultivates creative and critical thinking, develops leadership and social skills, and promotes service to others over the pursuit of self-interest through a vigorous athletic program in a supportive community of talented coaches and student athletes. In that regard, the Heathwood Hall athletic program is an integral part of the School’s mission. Similar to all other areas of the School, the athletic program, both in terms of philosophy and personnel, is part of every student's journey. The School believes that competitive team sports represent a critical opportunity for young people to experience the values of sacrificial collaboration, stewardship, inclusivity, and respect for the dignity of every human being. While the School is committed to excellence, it does not believe that such a commitment necessitates “winning at all costs”. Rather, we believe in challenging student-athletes to balance individual and collective responsibility and growth through hard work, determination, fair play, sportsmanship, and accepting the role each is asked to play.
