Welcome from the Director
Gerstell Academy’s dedication and focus on Physical Training helps to cultivate an understanding of health and fitness for life. An integral part of our Physical Training program is interscholastic athletics. Our middle and upper school students have the opportunity to compete on interscholastic and/or intramural teams in soccer, cross country, basketball, lacrosse, wrestling and baseball. We also plan to expand our programs in the near future to include tennis and other team and individual sports. Each of our outstanding coaches focus on being a “Leadership Instructor” while using their knowledge to teach and mentor all of our student-athletes while maximizing their potential to grow as successful leaders.
We strongly encourage all ninth graders to get involved each fall to begin their pursuit of the Golden Falcon Award which recognizes those student-athletes who participate in athletics for all three seasons, all four years of their upper school career.
One of the best opportunities to build school spirit is through athletics. I encourage all of you to attend as many athletic events as you can with your family. As a former student-athlete, I experienced first-hand the advantage of having family, friends and school supporters in the stands.
As our school grows, our Falcon Pride becomes more evident around campus and in the community. We continue to provide all of our student-athletes incredible leadership opportunities on the athletic field and we hold our coaches and players to the highest standards of sportsmanship, competitiveness and respect for the game. Gerstell Academy has built an athletic program that is respected around the state by coaches, players, parents and athletic directors alike and we look forward to watching our Falcon family continue to grow! See you at the games and… GO FALCONS!
