College Athletes

Student-athletes excel beyond graduation

Since the PCDS graduating Class of 2000, just under 10% of PCDS graduates have gone on 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 average from other independent schools, and triples the overall national high school average rate.

What makes our student-athletes different? In addition to being talented and hard working, PCDS graduates 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.
