The Suffield Academy boys’ basketball program is one of the strongest independent school sports traditions in New England, making the NEPSAC Class A playoffs five out of the six seasons since making the leap from Class B in 2014.
Our program is rooted in the concept of Arete – the act of living up to one’s full potential, constantly seeking to become the best version of oneself. We apply this to our lives on the court, in the classroom, and within our community and we ground ourselves in our core values of communication, accountability, and selflessness. Our student-athletes are leaders on campus and many also compete at the varsity level in the fall and/or spring, standing out on the field, tennis court, track, golf course, and in the pool.
Many previous Tigers have continued their playing careers at the collegiate level, using basketball as a tool to help them earn admission to some of the most prestigious academic institutions in the world: Amherst, Babson, Bentley, Bucknell, Chicago, Colby, Columbia, Connecticut College, Franklin & Marshall, Georgetown, Hamilton, Lafayette, Lehigh, Middlebury, Northeastern, Rochester, UCLA, Vassar, Wesleyan, and Yale. Suffield Academy has placed 19 college basketball players in the last five years alone.
