Student Life


Our Patriot student-athletes see every practice, every game, every class, and every exam as an opportunity to push beyond boundaries. 
Our student-athletes care about the process and the outcome, about their character and display of sportsmanship, and about the pursuit of winning conference and state championships for their school and for themselves.

The Best at Getting Better

At Davidson Day, we care about the development of all of our students from the time they enroll through when they graduate, and beyond, whether they choose not to continue to play or compete and when they do choose to compete after graduating Davidson Day at an intramural level, a club level, a varsity level, or as a professional athlete.

We care about student development, and our athletics program inspires our student-athletes to become the best at getting better.

More than 90 percent of our students elect to participate in a varsity sport, and many participate and compete in more than one. All students receive physical education as a core part of our academic curriculum, as movement and motion is linked to improved student outcomes and healthy, age-appropriate development.

It’s because we’ve built our Davidson Day Athletics Program to be the best at getting better that our student-athletes have captured conference championships and individual accolades like All-Conference Team Selections, Player of the Year Awards, All-State Team Selections, and All-American Honors.

Because we’re focused on becoming the best at getting better, our Davidson Day Patriots brought home a team state championship (Varsity Girls Basketball, third year in a row) and six individual state championships (Varsity Swimming and Varsity Track & Field) in the 2020–2021 academic year.
When you join Davidson Day, and when you join a Patriots team, you join a secure, supportive community that values collaboration, creativity, and character development in everything that we do, including our enriching athletics programs.

Go Patriots!
