PCDS College Athletes

In its over-fifty year history, many PCDS graduates have gone on to play sports at the collegiate level at a wide variety fantastic colleges and universities.  In fact, since the PCDS graduating Class of 2000, just under 10% of PCDS graduates have gone to college as athletic recruits, playing a wide range of sports at the NCAA Division I, II, III and competitive (traveling) club levels, which nearly doubles the national rate from other Independent schools, and triples the national high school average rate. 

In addition to being gifted, hard working, and talented enough to play a sport at the college level, our students have been especially prepared to hold up the “student” part of the “Student Athlete experience” in college.  While not all of our college athlete graduates have gone on to play professional sports, their athletic experiences and prowess did contribute to stellar experiences at some of the best colleges and universities in the world and, in turn, in their personal and professional experiences beyond graduation. 

Below, you’ll see a list of PCDS graduating classes since 2000, the matriculating college athletes, and the college sports represented by those student athlete graduates, as well as a list of colleges where those students have played.  The list grows more and more with each graduating class, and our students continue to be highly recruited by collegiate teams both for their athletic skills and intellectual prowess.
