Competing with a Big Heart

Athletics has been an integral part of a student’s education at Ransom Everglades throughout the school’s history. Our goal is to foster a student's passion for sports while instilling a lifelong work ethic. We want athletics to open doors and create enjoyable habits for life.

Ransom Everglades has a long, proud tradition of honor and excellence on the athletic fields. The Middle and Upper Schools currently field 76 teams for boys and girls in 17 sports. Head coaches are teachers and educators, and many are part of the academic faculty.
    • Students' Perspectives: Athletics
Most Ransom Everglades teams compete in the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) and Greater Miami Athletic Conference (GMAC). All interscholastic high school teams are under the umbrella of the National Federation of High Schools (NFHS). The FHSAA assigns each athletic team to a district based on the school’s population and location. The level of competition has no bearing on the assignment.

Our all-time winning percentage of more than 70 percent speaks to our program's success. For the past three seasons, the Miami Herald ranked Ransom Everglades the top high school athletics program in Class 5A-1A in Miami-Dade County, based on our in-class regular season win percentage and playoff records. In 2015-16, Ransom Everglades students Sofia Carrera-Justiz '16 and Michael Colonna '17 were named Dade County Players of the Year.

We don’t recruit athletes. We build programs. About 15-18 percent of Raider athletes go on to play at the collegiate level every year. And while there is no requirement that students participate in sports, between 80-90 pecent of our students play on at least one team each year.

Beyond the field, court or pool, all of our teams commit to outreach and volunteer programs within the school and greater Miami community.

Whether it’s Middle School teams running food drives, or Upper School teams acting as mentors and tutors at local elementary schools, these efforts develop empathy as well as team spirit. They are part of the reason we like to think all Ransom Everglades athletes compete with a big heart.

Athletics Mission Statement

From its founding in 1903, Paul Ransom believed that physical activity and character development were essential for each student. His goal was to prepare each student by providing a sense of identity, personal integrity and the values to lead a productive life. Athletics at Ransom Everglades is inherently valuable and complements the academic rigor that helps fulfill the mission. The athletic department offers a wide range of high-quality programs to encourage all participants to compete at a high level while displaying honor, team spirit and good sportsmanship.
