Character, Purpose, & Community
The Bentley pillars of character, purpose, and community are woven throughout all aspects of our athletic program. Bentley student-athletes commit to their academic enrichment, to character, to self, and to their team and peers. Student-athletes are committed to being honest, positive, productive, inclusive, and understanding. They are individuals who are present, accountable, and respectful of how their actions affect others.
Bentley believes physical fitness should be a life-long practice. Physical education classes extend from Kindergarten to a full range of Life Fitness classes in the upper grades. In addition to interscholastic sports, we offer a full range of Life Fitness classes at the Upper School. Classes include yoga, fencing, dance, rugby, weight training, sport-specific pre-season conditioning, and cardiovascular conditioning.
Values of Participation
Athletics at Bentley School encompasses more than just competition. Remaining in line with the school’s mission statement, athletics is another venue for teaching and educating.
The focus of the Bentley School Athletics Department is to enrich the mental, emotional, and physical well-being of every student-athlete. Competition provides opportunities in which the values of sportsmanship, teamwork, individual effort, integrity, work ethic, commitment, and self-discipline are emphasized.
