About Ravenscroft Athletics
We appreciate your interest in Ravenscroft. At Ravenscroft, we maintain high expectations for all of our programs. Our competitive athletic programs promote growth and develop leadership skills in our student-athletes while providing them the opportunity to build meaningful and life-long relationships.
As a member of the North Carolina Independent Schools Athletic Association (NCISAA), Ravenscroft does not actively recruit athletes to play sports at our school. In accordance with NCISAA rules: “Coaches, teachers, administrators, other school employees or persons known to be associated with the school’s athletic booster club may not initiate contact with a student-athlete to encourage him or her to attend the school. Once a student has made initial contact with the school’s admissions office, then coaches or other representatives of the school may approach the student about the school’s programs.”
Ravenscroft School does not provide athletic scholarships for student-athletes.
