2016 Western New England Secondary School Lacrosse Association (WNESSLA) Champions 2016 Colonial Tournament Champions
The Gunnery is built upon a tradition honoring the four cornerstones of character: scholarship, integrity, respect, and responsibility. As a coaching staff we work tirelessly throughout the year to instill these values in our players. Our goal is to develop young men of character who will become leaders in the community, outstanding students, and exceptional lacrosse players. The Gunnery has built a strong lacrosse tradition in which our players strive for both academic and athletic excellence and understand that there is a direct relationship between successes in both areas.

Founded in 1850 by abolitionist, educator, and outdoorsman Frederick Gunn, The Gunnery is a coeducational college preparatory boarding and day school for students in grades 9 through 12/post-graduate. Dedicated teacher-mentor-coaches challenge students to reach their full potential in a home-like setting where character and citizenship are valued as much as intellect and achievement. Individualized attention and high expectations help young learners develop not only the skills and confidence they will need in college, but also the moral compass and love of learning that will serve them well in life. The school attracts ambitious, academically curious students who will both shine as unique individuals and thrive as contributing members of a deeply connected community. By the time they graduate, Gunnery students have become well rounded, grounded young adults with a sharpened sense of who they are and who they want to become.
