Athletics Overview

The athletic department at NUI school dynamically supports the mission of the school, which is to pursue Excellence through Community. We believe through athletics we can accomplish academic excellence, a positive school climate, and student curiosity. The athletic program influences interscholastic athletics, which provides lifelong ongoing experiences to student-athletes while mastering their achievement of educational goals. Our goal is to encourage the values of teamwork, pride, respect, commitment, good work ethic, sportsmanship, and the development of a proper winning attitude. We hope that through our athletic programs, our student-athletes will embrace these guidelines and develop a positive winning attitude that will carry over into all aspects of their lives.

NUI currently has four teams:
  • Middle School Boys Basketball
  • High School Boys Basketball 
  • High School Boys Soccer (View 2021 Fall Schedule)
  • High School Girls Basketball 

If your child is interested in joining please email: athletics@nuischool.org.
