"Garrison Forest’s Athletic Program provides students with many opportunities to compete in a sport at a level appropriate to the student’s skill and experience. In keeping with the School’s motto, Esse Quam Videri —To Be Rather Than To Seem, we seek to develop within each student a strong sense of identity, integrity, and self-esteem. Student athletes develop cooperation, sportsmanship, responsibility, loyalty, and a sense of contribution to a group effort—ideals invaluable for meeting any daily challenge. We uphold these ideals for student-athletes, parents, and fans alike, and expect, at all times, good sportsmanship."
- Traci Davis, Athletic Director
