WRA to host Athletics Open House on November 30

On Friday, Nov. 30, at 5:30 p.m., Western Reserve Academy will host its annual Athletics Open House, an open invitation to prospective families to learn about the school's winning athletics program. Coaches will be on hand to talk about our 24 interscholastic sports and tour visitors through unparalleled facilities, including the 45,000-square-foot Murdough Athletic Center (MAC), with its indoor track, batting cages, swimming pool and diving well, and wrestling room. The MAC's two basketball courts will be on special display during the Open House, as the Boys Varsity basketball team takes on Columbus Academy at 7 p.m. and the Girls Varsity team plays Culver Academies at 7 p.m. Admission to the games is complimentary for all guests.

In addition to conversations with coaches, tours and Friday night basketball, attendees will learn about the outcomes of our athletics programs, including the fact that each year, approximately 20 percent of WRA graduates go on to play collegiate sports at the country's best colleges. Just a few of the recent college destinations of WRA student-athletes include:
