Teacher-Coach Model

At every level and in every season, St. Sebastian’s interscholastic teams are coached by dedicated and talented members of our faculty. A student may be learning Shakespeare in the morning from the same teacher who is leading basketball drills in the afternoon. As a result, students experience the athletic field as an extension of the classroom, where they can be challenged and taught the values of teamwork, sportsmanship, and dedication.

St. Sebastian’s takes great pride in its commitment to the teacher-coach model. Each student is known and loved by his teachers, and those connections grow even deeper as coaches and players work together to achieve a common goal. These connections serve the boys well, inspiring them to strive for excellence in the classroom and on the field.

The teacher-coach model has allowed me to deepen my relationships with teachers outside of the classroom and to see other sides of teachers, which has made playing sports very special.
