Interscholastic athletics are an important part of the educational culture at Kentucky Country Day School and are considered to be an essential component in the overall development of our students. Development of character, sportsmanship, and a lifelong appreciation for physical activity, teamwork, and interpersonal relationships are the primary goals that drive the athletic program.
The Bearcat athletic program offers 15 sports, over 50 middle and upper school teams, and some of the best athletic facilities in the state. Our program has produced both team and individual state champions, and our teams compete against some of the biggest schools in the region. We’re serious about athletics here at KCD, which is why sports and fitness are part of every school day.
After meeting their athletic requirement, almost 80% of upper school students continue to compete in our athletic program. Our student-athletes are often recognized for achievements in academics and the arts as well as for efforts on the playing field.
We believe that athletics provides a unique opportunity to develop character, sportsmanship, and teamwork. The Bearcats have been presented with the Sportsmanship Recognition Award by the KHSAA a number of times over the last several years.
