Chiaravalle Gym

Our goals for athletics are simple: improved overall health and choice in activity, leading to a richer sense of community. 

Chiaravalle Montessori is the home of the Cardinals. Our athletics are a source of community building and school spirit. Participating generates excitement about being a Chiaravalle kid and family.

Upper Elementary and Middle School students can participate in interscholastic cross-country, basketball, track, and volleyball. Other sports, like flag football, are offered as recreational skill-building experiences. Some sports, like basketball, offer 1st-3rd students a chance to join skill-building teams that may participate in the Evanston recreation league. 

There is an additional fee for participation in sports and after school studios. Online registration is available a few weeks before the start of the season.
