At Oak Hill, athletes are challenged to discover their God-given talents in a team-centered environment. Coaches balance development with competition, teaching values for life beyond the playing field. This approach of challenge, cooperation, and competition with character provides the foundation of athletics at our school. We invite you to be a part of the Panther partnerships whether athlete, parent, or fan, as together we strive for excellence and to represent our school with integrity.
Incredible learning opportunities are not limited to a classroom setting. Some of the most valuable lessons are learned on the field, in the gym and on the track. Ask an Oak Hill student or alumnus and you will hear the words “teamwork, resilience, sportsmanship, service, hard work, courage, and leadership.” These traits describe the lessons learned through athletics at Oak Hill.
Many call it Panther Pride! You hear it in the huddle after a game. You see it on the field in the closing minutes of a hard fought competition. You feel it at the pep rally and at Flag Raising when teams are introduced. We offer 12 teams in seven sports including:
- Boys & Girls Cross Country
- 5th and 6th Grade Football
- Girls Volleyball
- Boys & Girls Basketball
- Boys & Girls Dribblers
- Boys & Girls Lacrosse
Panther Pride is not only about winning, and we do plenty of that, but it is about working hard, never quitting, and committing to something larger.
In the Fall of 2012, we published our Athletics Handbook for Parents and Athletes, outlining our mission, philosophy, expectations and guidelines. At Oak Hill School, we are committed to providing an athletic program in keeping with our overall mission, and we welcome our parents to partner with us in this goal.
