After a two year stay in the Georgia High School Association, Deerfield-Windsor School, along with many other independent schools in Georgia, joined the newly formed Georgia Independent Athletic Association in 2022. Deerfield-Windsor previously was a powerhouse in the Georgia Independent Schools Association and returned to compete with these long standing rivals.
Over the years, Deerfield-Windsor amassed 57 state titles and well over 100 region titles. As well as individual team titles, the athletic program won the GISA region 3-AAA Overall Athletic Award every year since its inception in 1999/2000. Not only has there been success on a regional level but also on a state level. The department won the prestigious Dr. Michael Drake Award on numerous occasions and boasts the most successful athletic program in the GISA.
The 2022-2023 athletic season will no doubt demonstrate an enormous change for the Knights as they explore new territory for the first time in the GIAA. This season will mark a return to our “old foes' in teams like Brookwood School, Southland Academy, Terrell Academy, Tift Area Academy and Valwood School, whilst still having the option to play many GHSA schools.
DWS offers 19 sports for boys and girls, as well as offering a wide range of Middle School sports.
