Big Red Athletics

We inspire active lives of integrity, confidence and empathy.

We are E-X–E-T–E-R!

Athletics is a cornerstone of the Exeter experience, promoting character development and collaboration. Big Red athletes have been representing the Academy with the highest integrity and sportsmanship for 150 years. Nearly 70% of students participate on Exeter’s 60 interscholastic teams, representing 23 different sports.

Just as we strive for excellence in the classroom, we strive to be our best selves in competition. The lessons we learn on the playing field — in victory and in defeat — prepare us to meet challenges, embrace success and overcome setbacks. And along the way, our student-athletes create bonds that are as strong as those made at the Harkness table and in the dorms. We are E-X-E-T-E-R.
