Athletics are integral to the High Mowing experience. Here students with a wide range of skill levels find the opportunity to develop a sense of teamwork, experience respect for self and others, and learn to play hard and fair.
Being on a team, you learn much more than the basics of how to kick a ball, swing a racket, or sink a basketball. While skill development and being physically fit are emphasized, you learn how to be a team player, how to cooperate, and how to develop a healthy approach to competition. Our approach to sports aims for healthy competition, and gives you a fun, enjoyable way to use the many skills you develop. You experience a strong sense of belonging, develop camaraderie, and build long-lasting friendships.
In addition to participating with schools within the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC), we are a member of the River Valley Athletic League (RVAL). This league also has the same values and philosophical approach to sports as High Mowing and offers our teams the possibility to participate in playoffs.
High Mowing sports facilities include a tennis court, two soccer fields, a multi-purpose field, a gymnasium, and cross-country running trails.
