About Us

The mission of The School Without Walls at Francis Stevens athletic department is to create a safe and enjoyable environment where we

  • Foster the development of players, coaches, and all members included in our athletic community,

  • Honor the game and every aspect of the sport, and

  • Demonstrate the characteristics of a productive and global citizen.


We are committed to creating a positive culture in which we work together to achieve our mission.

Our vision is to provide our players and coaches with the tools, skills, and mentorship for growth and advancement in and out of sport. Our department emphasizes encouragement, sportsmanship, and respect. We want our players, coaches, and athletic community to be ambitious, resilient, enthusiastic, confident, and compassionate. Our school often presents students with their first athletic encounter. We want to ensure students have a positive experience that will inspire them to improve their game, think critically, and return to every practice and competition with excitement.

SWW@FS athletics offers sports through the District of Columbia Interscholastic Athletic Association (DCIAA). If we do not have your sport of choice, families are encouraged to join other established and refined athletic organizations within the district.
