Athletics

You'll be part of the team

The small size of our school means that everyone who wants to participate in athletics generally can. In an environment where all students are encouraged to get involved, our students often have the ability to hone their skills and develop their competitive edge in a way they wouldn’t in a larger program.

We have an extremely talented coaching staff, headed up by our Athletic Director Chris Ziemer, who has been voted "Best High School Coach" in Sonoma County multiple years running and also coaches our girls soccer team. Additionally, the athletic program is supported by the equally amazing Associate Athletic Director Kevin Christensen, who also coaches girls basketball.

Many of our coaches played at the college, semi-professional, or professional levels. All have had extensive coaching experience, often also at the college level, and know how to inspire our student-athletes. 

Athletics Mission

We call our student-athletes to pursue victory with honor. We promote and teach all Sonoma Academy students the values of integrity, self-discipline, sportsmanship, teamwork, creativity, and commitment.

We promote these characteristics while fielding a competitive interscholastic sports program and promoting lifelong physical education habits.

The interscholastic sports, physical education, and outdoor education programs each rely on this basic philosophy. Student actions within the athletic program will reflect the school’s values of consideration, trust, and mutual responsibility.

Sonoma Academy Is...

Sonoma Academy is the only private, independent, college preparatory high school in Sonoma County. On our beautiful campus nestled at the base of Taylor Mountain in Southeastern Santa Rosa, our students are able to explore their interests and passions in a rigorous and inspiring environment that develops a lifelong love of learning and prepares them for college and beyond.
