Athletics at Lawrence Academy

An independent high school in Groton, Massachusetts


At Lawrence Academy, athletics offer a range of activities for students of all abilities.

From our varsity teams to junior varsity and thirds, students can compete intensely in their favorite sport and are encouraged to branch out and try a sport that might be entirely new to them; and, just as our teachers do in the classroom, our coaches train, motivate, and guide their players to an understanding of the importance of investing your time and energy in the little things.

In other words, if you put effort into practice and warm-ups, you’ll be prepared for the game – and, of course, for life.

On our campus, team sports are valued for the many lessons they teach:

• Physical Fitness
• Teamwork
• Sportsmanship
• Sacrifice
• Leadership

All LA teams belong to the 16-member Independent School League (ISL), as well as the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC). A strong and fiercely competitive league, the ISL values honorable representation, proper conduct, and good sportsmanship.

We believe that athletics help students understand the rewards that come with hard work and play, as well as the importance of working with teammates to find both group and individual success.

Can’t wait to see you on campus!

Kevin Potter
Athletic Director
