The Arete Prep 2020 fall sports season is just around the corner. REGISTRATION begins Saturday 8/1. At this time, registration will remain open for both MS and HS, until 8/24. New this year, late registrations may not be accepted. Please be proactive in registering for fall athletics. It really helps us to measure interest, number of teams, and helps with staffing. Use the following link to find information on the registration and enrollment process:

Registration and Payment Information

PAYMENT: Please DO NOT make payment for fall sports at this time. In the case that we cannot initiate or continue our fall season we would like to avoid issuing many refunds as we had to in spring of 2020. Dates to initiate and a deadline to complete payment will be provided in the future. Fees for ’20-21 remain the same as last year, $260 for each MS season, and $300 for each HS season. 

On 8/5, the AIA created new and staggered start times for fall athletics. First tryouts/practices are now:

Cross Country: 8/24, first competition 9/9, championships 11/12-13

Swimming: 8/24, first competition 9/14, championships 11/5-7

Volleyball: 8/31, first competition 9/21, championships 11/12-21

Football: 9/7, first competition 9/30-10/3, championships TBD

At this time MS athletics are still scheduled to begin 8/24, but that date is still subject to change. 

More specific start dates, calendars, and sport specific information will be available in the near future.  Sport specific questions can be directed to our coaching staff, using the following directory:
