Dwight School’s Athletic Department believes that sports and fitness can be important elements of a student’s spark of genius, and stresses the importance of goal-setting, improvement, and the development of character. Ultimately, we believe that building character is the essence of the educational experience. Through sacrifice and effort, our student-athletes struggle, fail, succeed, and try again -- always having fun in a nurturing but competitive environment designed to produce young people of great character. The pursuit of team and individual excellence plays a major role in the development of our student-athletes. Because of the online nature of Dwight Global, we do not have our own sports teams, but we do encourage or student-athletes to engage fully with coaches and teams in the areas in which they live.
As Dwight Global is committed to the development of the whole child, including physical well-being, all students at Dwight Global enter into a physical education contract in which they commit to attaining 400 minutes of physical exercise every ten school days. This can be through participation on local teams or through individual pursuits. We have an online health coach available to help motivate and inspire our students to pursue their individual health and fitness goals.
