Athletic Programs

At Gross Schechter, one of our core values is Btzelem Elokim, where we value the uniqueness of each individual and instill the concept of Shmirat Ha’guf, where health and wellness is a priority. To that end, our students receive physical education four times a week and have a range of after-school sports to choose from including:
All of our students, from our Early Childhood Center through our Middle School have daily physical activity.  We have indoor gross motor equipment for our youngest students, a state of the art gymnasium utilized by all students and phenomenal outdoor fields and playgrounds.
Our students in Kindergarten through Eighth grade have physical education classes three times a week, totaling 144 minutes, which is much higher than the State of Ohio average of 70 minutes weekly.
For our middle school students, we offer tw0 different after-school team sports that practice and compete in a league with other area independent schools.
We offer:
  • Soccer – C0-Ed
  • Varsity and JV Basketball Teams- Co-Ed
