Activities & Athletics
EAB Activities & Athletics is committed to enhancing a student's life through positive experiences in extracurricular offerings. We strive to connect with our Mission & Vision statements through our programs of Club EAB, Upper School (US) Clubs, and Athletics. We value helping students achieve excellence beyond the classroom, promoting new areas of growth by positively impacting character, and enhancing interactions through leadership opportunities.
Club EAB & LS Athletics are extracurricular programs that support and enrich EAB's curriculum for Lower School students (K5-5th grade). This is successfully achieved by encouraging and supporting students to pursue the development of talents and skills based on EAB's five pillars: Academics, Arts, Leadership, Service Learning, and Activities.
Club EAB & LS Athletics assist the whole child in achieving his or her own potential through a differentiated, innovative learning experience while cultivating responsible and contributing citizens, leaders, environmental stewards, and role-model athletes.
The purpose of activities at EAB is to open various avenues for teachers and students to work together to fulfill the school's vision to "positively impact the world through excellence in academics, activities, arts, leadership, and service." Activities generally run from 3:20-4:10 p.m. or during lunch, depending on the needs and constraints of the participants.
The Athletics program is designed to follow our Activities & Athletics Mission Statement and the 5 Pillars of EAB Athletics. We are an educational athletics (sports) program that offers competitive teams and inclusiveness when possible. Athletics for Varsity & JV teams meet from 4:30-6:00 p.m. pending on the season. Sports offerings are structured per seasonal offerings (August to December / January to May) that is in line with our Association of American Schools in Brazil (AASB) tournaments!

"Activities & Athletics are a key part to the development of our students and community. We value offering educationally inclusive activities and teams whenever possible. Al Burr, a former NFHS President said:
“Nowhere do you find it in education like you find it in activities, that teachers are teaching what they want to teach to students who are learning what they want to learn, and both are willing to work hour after hour on their own time after school so that everything that can be taught is taught, and everything that can be learned is learned.”
You are welcome to read our Handbook to learn more about the variety of options for Activities and Athletics our students can participate in."
