Brighton is working towards a full interscholastic athletic program. The school is dedicated to excellence in athletics but will not compromise academic standards should they prove to be in conflict with athletics. Athletics provide more than exercise and competition. Sport, at its best, teaches the virtues of humanity: courage, grace, persistence, discipline, and greatness of spirit. Brighton supports athletics as intrinsic to the spiritual as well as the physical well-being of young people. Sports is a vehicle in which young people can learn to work together toward a common goal, respect others, build confidence and develop sound values that will remain with them the rest of their lives.
Brighton’s athletic program strives to support the School’s mission of developing the whole person. We believe that thoughtfully designed and directed, age-appropriate, athletic experiences contribute to the development of the discipline, character, respect, confidence, and favorable habits, which are part of the preparation for adult life.
