mens sana in corpore sano

Westchester Country Day’s Latin motto, Mens Sana in Corpore Sano (A sound mind in a sound body), has guided the school’s leaders to the conviction that the athletic program is a vital part of the holistic education offered at the school. Physical, intellectual, and social skill building are all part of the process of preparing our young charges for future challenges. Sportsmanship, respect for others, loyalty, commitment, teamwork, and a strong individual work ethic are values held high, and relied upon as a foundation for an education within our athletic program. Winning is always a goal, but never the primary focus of our responsibility as educators. We believe every student can achieve success in and out of the classroom, and we strongly encourage participation in athletics. Our teams are highly competitive, yet what we value most is sportsmanship and respect.
