We all participate.

At Harley, we believe that extracurricular activities are an extension of the classroom. For that reason, all students participate in a team sport. Student involvement in sports begins in middle school with our modified team offerings, and in Grades 9 and 10, students are required to participate in a team sport of their choice.

We value partnership.

The Harley School and Allendale Columbia School maintain a joint athletic program to offer the best possible athletic options for students. By combining resources, student bodies, facilities, as well as faculty for coaching purposes, both schools offer dynamic sports programs that fully support the physical, mental and social development of each student athlete.

The HAC Teams, as they are known, are affiliated with the New York State Public High School Athletic Association, Section V and the Finger Lakes Athletic Association, and they compete in:

  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Bowling
  • Cross country
  • Golf
  • Soccer
  • Softball
  • Swimming
  • Tennis
  • Track and field
  • Volleyball

No one gets cut.

We want all of our students to feel free to try new activities and to experience what it means to struggle, improve, and succeed. Our no-cut policy means that students have the opportunity to play on a team, even if they are still developing as an athlete.

We are champions both on and off the field.

HAC teams have won 64 overall Section V Championships in 11 different sports, including at least one Section V Championship for the past 23 straight years.

Every sports team has been recognized as a Scholar Athlete Team each season for the past seven years. A Scholar Athlete team is a team whose GPA (from at least 75% of the roster) is greater than or equal to 90.00%

Harley has also been recognized as one of only four schools in New York State to have seven consecutive years as a NYSPHSAA School of Distinction, given to schools where all of their sports teams are recognized as Scholar Athlete Teams.

We promote balance.

We create a safe place for students to try, fail, and try again both in the classroom and on the field, with a goal of teaching our students to live balanced, healthy lives.

We encourage teamwork.

We help create a community where students value each other’s interests and talents. Everyone is challenged to do something outside their comfort zone.

We respect the individual.

Understanding the commitment that many of our students make to individual sports, such as skiing, equestrian, gymnastics, dance, and other outside-of-school sports, Harley allows students to fulfill physical education credits with independent study that is reviewed and approved by the physical education department.
