- Lower and Middle School No-Cut Policy: Allows every Episcopal student the experience of competing on our teams.
- Multi-sport Athletes: 80% of our student body participates in athletics at Episcopal, with 51% of those athletes playing multiple sports. We believe in multiple athletic opportunities to gain varied experience, prevent overuse injuries, and avoid burnout.
- Collegiate Athletes: ESJ’s Athletics and College Counseling departments work together to help student athletes who wish to participate at the next level succeed. On average, 20% of senior athletes, three times the national average, go on to participate in collegiate athletics annually, from Division I to Division III schools.
- Quality Coaches: The majority of our coaches are athletes themselves who participated in the sports they coach at the collegiate and/or professional level, as well as in the Olympics. Their experience and qualifications are invaluable for Episcopal’s student athletes.
- Strength and Conditioning Coach: Having a full-time strength and conditioning coach on campus to support our athletic teams allows coaches to focus on strategy and students to gain strength training on campus without having to seek outside training programs.
