Our outstanding coaching staff, consisting primarily of academic and residential faculty, serve as teachers and mentors for our boys, working closely with our student-athletes to pursue excellence while developing leadership, sportsmanship, teamwork and an appreciation for lifelong fitness

Since athletic participation is a required part of the CFS experience, we provide a diverse selection of competitive, developmental and recreational options. Whether a student is a varsity-level athlete or a beginner, we offer programs that are both challenging and rewarding. CFS fields multiple levels of competitive teams, listed below, well as non-competitive options such as intramural sports and strength and conditioning. We have four soccer fields, six tennis courts, a running track, a basketball gym and a multi-purpose field house used for wrestling, basketball and much more.

Every student at Church Farm School, regardless of experience, will find a team where they are able to explore interests and gain confidence and skills that will serve them well throughout the rest of their lives. Go Griffins!

  • Athletic Requirements

    All CFS students are required to participate on interscholastic teams a minimum of two seasons each year. The third season may be spent on an interscholastic team, as a manager or with an afterschool club. Club options may vary by year. Seniors who are unable to participate on two interscholastic teams due to roster limits may apply for a waiver of the two-season rule with the Director of Athletics.

    Students must attend all team practices and competitions, including Friday afternoon and weekend obligations. Any student choosing to take part in a non-school program (evenings or weekends) must still attend all Church Farm School practices and contests. Interscholastic athletes are subject to all PIAA eligibility rules.
