Extracurricular Athletics for 3rd, 4th and 5th Grade
Donahue Academy’s athletics program includes students from Third Grade through their Senior year. While all grades in the Grammar Stage have weekly PE, only 3rd and 4th have have the opportunity to take part in extracurricular sports.
Please note that while 5th Grade is part of our Logic Stage, 5th Grade students participate in athletics at the Grade School level.
Girls and Boys Cross Country
Every Fall, the 3rd, 4th and 5th Grades can join our school’s highly successful Cross Country program. Many students continue running through their entire academic career with us while others use this time to build the endurance and character necessary to succeed in the Logic and Rhetoric stages.
This is a competitive sport and does include participation in meets with other schools, though students compete as individuals rather than a team. It serves primarily as a fun way for our younger students to enter the world of intermural athletics.
