Welcome to McQuaid Jesuit Athletics!

We are very proud of our athletic tradition here at McQuaid Jesuit. We have nearly 700 students competing on various teams for 21 sports at the interscholastic level. Athletics at McQuaid Jesuit always has been an integral part of the entire school experience. Each sport within the athletic program incorporates the values and mission of the school at large.

We believe our strong athletic program promotes enthusiasm, loyalty, and school spirit within the student body. It provides a link and rallying point for our students, parents, alumni, and interested community members. It is the goal of the athletic department that each student not only will learn the fundamentals of his sport, but at the same time will learn lessons grounded in the teachings of St. Ignatius and of McQuaid Jesuit that will remain with him throughout his life. The goal of Jesuit education is the pursuit of each student’s intellectual, spiritual, and physical development to the full measure of his God given talents.

At McQuaid Jesuit our athletic program mission is to complement our academic excellence. Our students learn and grow in this environment. I encourage you to attend a game or contest, visit our wonderful campus, and meet our teachers and coaches. We are proud to be in Rochester, NY and are committed to excellence in all we do.
