Athletics

The overarching mission of the Purnell Athletic Department, guided by the aforementioned goals, is for each individual student to experience the benefits of physical fitness, healthy living, and the camaraderie that comes from being a part of a team.  A variety of athletic activities, from non-competitive offerings to competitive team sports, affords Purnell students of every athletic ability and interest the opportunity to find a sport that suits them best.

Purnell's athletic facilities include five outdoor tennis courts, two sport fields, the Sessions softball field and outdoor batting cage, a ropes course and an indoor athletic center. The Moran Athletic Center boasts a 1,000 square foot gymnasium, an aerobics studio, a cardio/weight room, and a dedicated dance studio. Dance Synthesis is Purnell's competitive dance troupe that, while run through the Performing Arts Department, takes place during sports time. Purnell's riding program occurs off-campus at nearby Redfields Farm, where qualified instructors teach beginning through advanced hunt seat equitation in indoor and outdoor riding facilities.

Purnell competes in the New Jersey Association of Independent Schools Athletic Association.
