Campus Life

We develop leadership, foster community and sisterhood.

Beyond the classroom, we want Ann Richards School students to become lifelong leaders. That’s why we encourage our girls to participate in everything from sports and fine arts to afterschool programs and leadership groups. We know these activities develop well-rounded leaders and foster a sense of community and camaraderie.

Athletics

ARS students are getting in the game! We offer six sports: volleyball, soccer, track and field, cross country, tennis and basketball so that our girls form exercise habits—and take part in competition, too.
