FernLeaf students have the opportunity to participate in after school athletics & adventure sports

 

FernLeaf is a part of our local Hospitality League, which creates an athletic league for local private and charter schools to compete against each other.

FernLeaf also offers Adventure Sports offerings allowing our students the opportunity to learn a sport that takes advantage of the natural beauty of western North Carolina and to learn a life-long skill.
