Salisbury has a rich tradition of athletic competition dating back to the School’s founding in 1901. Our founding headmaster, George E. Quaile, believed it was just as important for boys to develop their bodies as it was to develop their minds.
We continue to honor this belief today. One of Salisbury’s foremost goals is to instill self-confidence through physical development. We are a community that fosters long-lasting ties of friendship, healthy competition and enjoyment of life. Our co-curricular program most certainly embodies these values. Our interscholastic and recreational programs offer boys opportunities to hone their leadership skills and develop key values including discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship, humility and respect for others that will inspire them to lead rewarding and active lives.
Salisbury students are three-season athletes. Whether a boy has been playing football for years or is learning the basics of tennis, he is part of the Crimson Knight tradition. Salisbury offers more than 30 interscholastic sports at a variety of levels and a number of recreational activities in which students can compete, and, hopefully, develop a lifelong appreciation for fitness.
Faculty members serve as coaches to our athletic teams and teach important lessons both on and off the field. These close-knit relationships are at the core of the Salisbury experience.
We are thrilled that Salisbury’s excellence in the classroom carries over to our athletic program. While we are fortunate to boast a number of New England and league championships in recent years, we are most proud of our students and their commitment to being gentlemen both on and off the field.
