In this Wednesday night Chapel Talk, Math teacher and boys basketball coach Sam Permutt shares anecdotes from his time playing professional basketball in Israel, and what that experience taught him about the importance of living in service to others—of living in love.
Connecting the Field, the Classroom, & the Wider World
St. Andrew's athletic philosophy is simply this: athletics and academics are not mutually exclusive or diametrically opposed; they are rather essential extensions of each other. We believe that all students (not just the naturally athletic) benefit from the collaboration, resilience, and self-discipline required by participation in team sports, and we believe that St. Andrew's academics benefit when students bring the leadership, self-confidence, and responsibility they've developed on the field, into their classrooms. The goal of St. Andrew's athletics is to build character in our students—character that students can then draw on in any situation at school or in the wider world.
