At GEMS World Academy Chicago, we are growing an athletic program in which all students can reach a level that surpasses their own expectations. We offer competitive sports and philosophically believe students should try a variety of sports to push themselves and find success in areas that may be surprising. At present, we play in a “no cut” league; any student that wishes to play has a spot on our teams.

Athletics Events

Unless we teach students how to maintain a healthy lifestyle in and out of school, we haven’t done our job.

Physical Education

We are educating the whole person in mind, body, and spirit. In our physical education program, we offer sport-for-life activities that extend beyond traditional sports such as basketball, volleyball, soccer, and more. Students take yoga, work with trainers, swim, rock climb, and develop an appreciation for physical activity. Physical education also includes instruction in nutrition, anatomy, and physiology.
