Our physical education program is designed to engage students in active, healthy lifestyles beginning in Pre-K. Whether the day calls for a game of capture the flag or a jog around our fourteen-acre campus, Country Day students strengthen their bodies and clear their minds with invigorating exercise. Our program not only helps build coordination, strength, and knowledge of sport fundamentals but also teaches students about wellness.

All students with an interest in athletics are encouraged to participate in one of nineteen sports or to join one of fifty middle, junior varsity, or varsity level teams, more than most Class 2A High Schools in Louisiana. Our “no cut” policy encourages all students to take a chance on the field, and we are pleased that eighty-five percent of upper school students chose to participate in at least one sport.
