Crescent’s Character-In-Action programs provide our boys with authentic opportunities to develop character outside of the classroom.


Building character happens on the field and in the gym as well as in the classroom. Crescent Athletics are “Character-in-Action” opportunities for coaches to teach boys values above winning, including sportsmanship, teamwork and respect.
We offer a diverse athletics program that provides opportunities for boys with different interests and levels of ability to participate in over 70 sports teams including volleyball, cross-country, track and field, hockey, swimming, baseball and tennis. In addition, there are intramural and House-based sports for students not on competitive teams.
