A wide range of clubs and activities are offered for students of all ages. At Princeton Charter School, we believe clubs and activities offer students the opportunity to develop interests, build relationships with classmates, and enjoy a healthy vibrant school community.
The Princeton Charter School offers sports teams for students in grades six, seven and eight. Teams practice after school three days a week. The Princeton Charter School believes that through participation in athletics, students have the opportunity to develop sportsmanship and teamwork, commitment and effort, and a sense of school spirit.
Through participation on sports teams, students also develop a healthy sense of belonging and membership in the school community. In addition, games and matches offer the opportunity for challenge. Valuable lessons are learned when facing challenges and meeting success or failure.
We believe that these character and physical developments occur only through the conscious effort by the coaches to teach these lessons.
Parents play an essential role in supporting the student by supporting the athletic philosophy and by modeling good sportsmanship qualities as a spectator.
The after-school sports program is open to students in grades 6, 7 and 8.
- Fall: Soccer, cross-country and field hockey
- Winter: Basketball
- Spring: Lacrosse
