Athletics at the Connecticut River Academy are designed to provide scholars the opportunity to participate in a variety of intramural sports and activities throughout the school year. Regardless of their athletic background, skill or ability levels, scholars are given a equal opportunity to be apart of a great experience. The Athletic Program also provides unique opportunities outside of school such as, the chance to play for different travel and AAU sports teams, as well as the ability to join the Riverfront Rowing program, that takes place right on the CT River.
To date, research shows that student-athletes perform better academically when compared to their peers who don’t participate. Specifically, current studies show that student-athletes are significantly more likely to graduate from high school, go on to attend college, score higher on standardized achievement tests (SAT), earn higher wages, have a higher level of self-confidence, and are more likely to report having positive relationships with school personnel.
Our focus is on providing the best possible opportunity for them to develop their fundamental skills, their love for athletics, their sense of teamwork and accomplishment, and most importantly, we hope that this experience brings enrichment and enjoyment to their time here at the Connecticut River Academy.
