Message from the Athletic Director
The athletics program is an essential component of Parrott's approach to developing well-rounded individuals. As in academic pursuits, we strive for excellence, instill values, and develop character. We encourage personal responsibility, development of interpersonal skills, foster communications skills between peers and coaches, and teach non-cognitive skills that are invaluable to all young adults.
Our exceptional coaching staff has combined to win over 25 state championships throughout their coaching careers and most have received local, state, and/or national coaching honors. We have prepared a multitude of high school athletes to play at the next level, including many Division I, II & III college athletes. We are proud of our tradition of excellence in athletics, but emphasize the most significant benefit of athletic participation at Parrott Academy is the development and nurturing of sportsmanship, character, and leadership skills.
We field 34 teams in 14 sports beginning in 7th grade and continuing through the Varsity level. Over 80 percent of our students play one sport and sixty percent play multiple sports. Our state-of-the-art athletic complex includes two indoor gyms, a lighted football stadium, lighted soccer and baseball fields, lighted field hockey and lacrosse field, and a softball field. Our active booster club provides various game-day support functions, such as staffing concession stands and organizing tailgate events. Athletics are a vital and important part of a Parrott education.
