Where Girls Keep Playing

At GPS, we know girls. We know they relish the chance to run and play, shout and sweat just as much as the boys do. That’s why our athletic program gives our girls every opportunity to pitch a fastball, serve an ace, spike a ball, drive in a goal, sprint for the wall, hit the water, bowl a strike, and set the pace.

GPS promises to develop the whole girl, and participation in sports can play a vital role in building character and a girl’s positive self-image. For a girl who chooses to play one, two, or three sports, our athletic program provides a foundation for a lifetime of achievement.
 
The GPS Athletics mission includes teaching girls to be team players, understand the importance of mental toughness, accept challenges enthusiastically, and value strength, fitness, stamina, and good health. The bonds of friendship that come from working hard every day as teammates—striving for excellence toward an ambitious goal and developing the fundamental values of discipline and self-improvement—all of these are part of athletics at Girls Preparatory School.
   
Ultimately, the GPS athletic environment is about aiming to be the very best on the field of competition, in the classroom, and in life. That attitude is shared by the outstanding staff of award-winning GPS coaches and more than 300 players who are involved at the varsity and middle school level.
