Combining Academic and Athletic Success

By Communications Specialist, Grades 9-12, Maegan Azpiazu

Gulliver continued its strong tradition of producing elite student-athletes this year, with 25 seniors announcing plans to continue their athletic and academic careers at the collegiate level. These students not only excel in competition, but also in the classroom, and many of them will attend some of the most academically-challenging institutions in the country.

"We are so proud of our student-athletes, as they continue to raise the bar on the field and in the classroom, as is evident in the outstanding academic institutions these students will be attending," said Head of School Frank Steel. "Their success is a testament to their hard work, and the dedication of our teachers and coaches in developing young men and women who have a deep commitment to personal excellence and social consciousness."
