Athletic programs

Embrace the Spartan spirit!

Stanstead College’s structured athletics program encourages teamwork, fair play, confidence, perseverance and, above all, health. Each term, students participate in one of many athletic options and have opportunities to compete against other schools and in tournaments. Regular practices take place after school four weekdays out of five, promoting skills development and physical fitness.

Although Stanstead College is a small school of approximately 200 students, the walls of our athletic facilities proudly display the many league, tournament and championship banners our teams have won over the years – a testament to the excellence of our athletics program.
