"Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts – these are the enduring qualities that our girls develop through sports." -- Michelle Woodruff, Athletic Director
|Foxcroft's motto -- Mens sana in corpore sano -- translates to “a healthy mind in a healthy body,” and is a central aspect of life on campus. The School is dedicated to the idea that exercise is critical in a girl's development, and so physical activity is a part of the curriculum. Each student is required to participate in a structured physical activity throughout the year. In addition to developing physical activity as a lifelong habit, we believe participation in sports teaches the core values of sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork, and commitment.|
