What Schools are Similiar to THE GUNNERY?

What schools are similiar to THE GUNNERY...ie well-balanced in terms of academics and athletics. For example, Salisbury is all about sports and is all-boys so we do not consider this to be similiar. We are looking for a school that is co-ed,structured,good sports program and good athletics(hockey,golf,soccer). What we do not want is an open-type environment,lax environment ,one gender, or a school that caters only to geniuses and is elite.

Any suggestions?

    I dont know too much about The Gunnery but a few schools come to mind.
    Brooks, GDA.

    The people I know who looked at Gunnery also looked at Canterbury, Kent and Suffield.
    You might also look at Cushing. The Hill in PA is structured, and I think they have the sports you want. If you decide to look at Blair Academy, I can answer questions on it. They have a 9-hole golf course, but go to a nearby hockey rink.

    I am not familiar with how most of the schools I suggested fare with your sports.

    Millbrook School (Please wait...) plays Gunnery in certain sports I believe. I think it may meet your criteria.

    Thanks ...we actually got into Millbrook and The Gunnery--but no f/a...which we need.
    We will look at some of these schools you have all suggested...
