School Life


Athletics & Sports

Physical activity is an essential part of every life.  Chatham Day School’s Physical Education program, for students in preschool through eighth grade, is designed to foster teamwork, self direction, and vigorous activity. At CDS, we encourage students to be active, and we teach them the skills needed to be healthy individuals. Through the carefully sequenced curriculum, students develop physical fitness, agility, balance, endurance, flexibility and strength. Physical education classes and recess are scheduled daily, as we recognize the importance of activity in cognitive development. When students reach middle school, they are encouraged to play sports on the club and interscholastic level.
