Athletics

Our School has a long and proud tradition of athletics and recognizes the importance athletics play in nurturing teamwork, self-discipline, perseverance and school spirit. MICDS offers more than 48 interscholastic teams and all students, JK-12, participate in athletics and experience a thorough grounding in physical education.

"Being a part of MICDS women’s lacrosse team has been an incredible experience. I’m not naturally athletic, but our coach and my amazing teammates gave me the confidence that hard work would pay off, and that confidence has carried over into my life off the field, too."
