At Greenbrier Academy, we take pride in the amount and variety of extracurricular activities that we offer our students. In addition to the terrific education that they will receive here, students will have the opportunity to participate in everything from soccer to whitewater rafting. We’re here to go over a few of the activities and programs we offer, and explain how your daughter will benefit from them.
We proudly offer an adventure, sports and riding program that ensures every student has the chance to engage in a rewarding activity on a weekly basis. While the specific activities we offer vary a bit depending on the time of year, in general we offer things like fishing, hiking, mountain biking, and even rock climbing. Although many of these activities are great workouts, they offer more than just physical exercise. Being outside in nature, and learning or honing a new skill, is a great way to stay positive. Your daughter will be able to try different types of activities, which could lead to her discovering a new passion or hobby that we hope will change her life for the better.
We also offer horse riding at our School of Horsemanship. Not only will this help students learn about equine arts, but also working with an animal to accomplish something is a great way to improve mental health. Being around animals is beneficial to many people, and working with and caring for a horse can be an incredibly rewarding experience.
There are also a wide range of less intensive activities and sports available including badminton, volleyball, and kickball. These types of activities help students to learn how to work together as a team, while bringing to light the specific contributions they bring to a larger group.
These are just a few of the activities we offer and how our students can benefit from them. For more news and information about Greenbrier Academy, keep checking back with our blog!
