Lead. Excel. Succeed.

Our interscholastic athletic program, like everything we do at Carlisle school, focuses on developing leaders. Whether on the field, the court, or the pitch, Carlisle student-athletes are prepared to excel.

Carlisle School offers a wide array of athletic options for its Middle and Upper School students. We believe that athletics can help students reach their full potential by teaching them the value of good sportsmanship, the lifelong value of involvement in sports through competition, the importance of commitment to shared goals, the value of working with a team, and the importance of making decisions and living with the consequences. And in order to provide this opportunity to every student, try-outs are not part of our athletic program. 

Carlisle School’s athletic program is one of inclusion and self-discovery, but also one that boasts a rich history of excellence. Our students and coaches have won 15 state titles over the last two decades.
