Alternatives to Athletics

During the fall trimester, students have the option of participating in a dramatic production in lieu of their athletic requirement. Students have mounted productions of Julius Caeser, The Putnam County Spelling Bee, and The Crucible in previous years instead of a fall sport.

Students who wish to pursue service instead of athletics can choose to participate in Learning Center, a daily visit to local after-school programs with the goal of helping young students with homework and reading. Learning Center students travel to local schools with a faculty member durinf the time normally devoted to athletic practie.

Students with a deep interest in the arts can apply for permission to delve into a particular art form instead of an athletic commitment for one trimester each year. Requires department approval.
