At Sumner Academy, students of all ages are invited to participate in our athletic programs.

Sumner Academy offers its students a wide variety of athletic options. From Kindergarten to 8th grade, students are encouraged to be active and participate in team sports.

Not only do we offer a variety of athletic sports and clubs, but students in grades PK-6 take part in daily Physical Education classes. Students in Upper Middle School participate in P.E. three days per week, with the option to take additional courses.

Hawk's Nest Athletics

The Hawk's Nest Athletic Program at Sumner Academy serves our youngest students in grades K-4. This program helps to develop school spirit and pride while building important camaraderie among classmates and across grade levels. Students participating on these teams will build foundational skills and begin understanding the general rules of a particular sport. Athletes participating in Running Club will compete in the same meets as cross country, but in their respective age brackets.
