Lower School Athletics

At Harker’s lower school, we offer a variety of sports programs for students starting in grade 4, teaching them valuable skills like teamwork, leadership and commitment.


We believe students – especially our lower school students – perform better academically, socially and emotionally when they engage in active, intentional play. Beyond daily activities in the classroom and recess on our expansive campus, we encourage our older lower school students to explore one of our many sports teams at Harker’s lower school.
