Both campuses of Runnels School will be CLOSED tomorrow, April 18 due to forecasts of enhanced risks of severe weather in the Baton Rouge area. All activities and field trips scheduled for tomorrow have been postponed. With safety as our primary concern, we are closing out of an abundance of caution. We greatly appreciate your understanding and support of this decision.

Athletic Rundown

The Runnels School offers participation in a wide variety of after-school sports for grades K-12. There are three divisions of Athletics: Elementary, Junior High and Varsity. Each division is led by its own Athletic Director. Coaches are carefully selected by the Athletic Directors to be excellent role models and to guide our student-athletes in the fundamentals of their sport at all skill levels.

While some athletes will later compete at the college levels, most will not; but all will learn the value of discipline, responsibility, teamwork and commitment. The “Scholar-Athlete” is a tradition at Runnels, where the leader on the court or on the field is typically also a leader in the classroom.
