Since its inception, The Benjamin School has produced some of the finest student-athletes in the state of Florida. Our graduates go on to play collegiate sports at all levels, including the scholarship, Division 1 level. Our sports program can be the path for an ambitious and talented student-athlete to go as far as he or she is capable. Some have gone on to play in the NFL, the PGA Tour, the WTA Tour and the European Women's Basketball League. A former Benjamin swimmer now holds an Olympic gold medal. While we are proud of our many high-achieving student-athletes, what is most important is the opportunity we offer every student to play and learn sports at a level that supports the capabilities of the individual student.
