St. Mark’s is well known within the community for its robust sports and athletic program. The program develops physical skills, character, and maturity through education and competition.
Beginning in Pre-K, our students are introduced to physical education through age-appropriate games, which teach sport-specific skills. As students progress through lower school, they are exposed to healthy competition in which character and sportsmanship are emphasized. With the goal of developing coordination, agility, and flexibility, St. Mark’s veteran PE staff administers the Presidential Physical Fitness Program. Personal improvement, rather than peer competition, is stressed and applauded. Those children seeking additional athletic opportunities participate in an after-school intramural sports program.
In addition to physical education classes, middle school students can participate in interscholastic sports. Representing St. Mark’s in the Palm Beach Independent Schools Athletic Conference, students compete against The Benjamin School, Jupiter Christian School, The King’s Academy, Meyer Academy, Palm Beach Day Academy, and Rosarian Academy. Led by coaches with high school and collegiate coaching experience, our middle school athletes are taught strategy and skills in a team environment that emphasizes sportsmanship and healthy competition. We want our children to understand the value of teamwork and how to win and lose with grace.
