HMS Athletics

Playing With Enthusiasm and Discipline

Our athletics program is an integral element of the High Mowing experience. Open to students with a wide range of skill levels, athletics offer students the opportunity to develop a sense of teamwork,  experience respect for self and others, and learn to play hard and fair. Our goals: for every student to participate enthusiastically and enjoy the rewards that come with commitment, discipline, being coached, and of course, to have fun!   

Playing the cello, writing an essay, creating a piece of art, or scoring a goal, in the classroom or on the field, on one’s own or as a team: at High Mowing, all are opportunities to strengthen relationships and develop new skills.

High Mowing is a member of the New England Preparatory Athletic Council (NEPSAC) District Two, through which students participate in interscholastic athletic competitions with other independent New England schools and participate in recreationally competitive  soccer, basketball, volleyball, and track and field.  Schools engaged with NEPSAC share the same athletic principles as we do at High Mowing. This bond fosters a community of sportsmanship within the independent school movement which we highly value.

High Mowing sports facilities include  a tennis court, two soccer fields, a multi-purpose field, a gymnasium, and cross-country running trails.  Students also enjoy an extensive network of nearby cross-country ski trails.
