Potomac's new Center for Athletics and Community will open in late fall 2019!

A Potomac School education integrates academics, arts, and athletics, challenging students to develop their interests and talents in diverse areas. Physical education and athletics are an important part of the overall picture, reflecting Potomac's commitment to health and well-being, sportsmanship, teamwork, and the development of leadership skills. Along with the school’s existing facilities, the new center will support a robust athletics program that fields 72 teams at various levels (intermediate, junior varsity, and varsity) in 26 interscholastic sports.

The new building will also provide an indoor space large enough to accommodate the entire Potomac community for assemblies, ceremonies, and other all-school gatherings.

At Potomac, school spirit and a strong sense of community are important. We look forward to all the ways the new center will bring the campus community together and enhance our PANTHER PRIDE!
