St. Catherine's recognizes the important role that athletics plays in the development of a well-rounded young man.  Our physical education program and championship athletic teams seek to develop skills and capabilities that reach far beyond the athletic field.
'Education is not merely the making of scholars. It is the making of men and women. It is the training of the younger generation in the art of living for their own greatest good and the greatest good of their fellow citizens.'
-Sherman Day Thacher
