An independent Preschool through Grade 12 school for gifted students.
One of the truly unique features of the Roeper Athletic program is that even at the Upper School level, students are offered the chance to participate in a first-rate, competitive sports program under its "no-cut policy."
There are no formal tryouts or cuts; any student may participate on a JV or Varsity team given desire, commitment and dedication to hard work. This policy allows students the opportunity to fully explore their own potential within the context of learning about responsibility to oneself and to the team.
Teaching young athletes the proper fundamentals and rules at the Middle School level is a major focus, and practice time is devoted to ensure that athletes have the proper building blocks to succeed in increasingly higher levels of play in the future. Guided by a positive learning environment, and fun and creative practices, over half of the Middle School student body participates in a sport each year.

Roeper athletes exceed in the classroom as well as on the playing fields and are the perfect examples for defining "Student Athlete." Roeper athletes consistently earn individual and team All State Academic awards. The program's success can also be seen in the performance of Roeper teams; they are often state-ranked and earn numerous League, District, Regional and State Championships, as well as team and individual honors at those levels.
