The Athletic program at Sacred Heart Academy plays an important role in the total educational development of our students.


The energy and school spirit of Sacred Heart Academy students is actively cultivated through a vibrant athletics program. As a member of the Athletics Association of Catholic Academies League and the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association, Sacred Heart competes in 10 sports and sponsors a variety of intramurals. Whether cheering from the sidelines or engaging in physical play, Sacred Heart team players regularly enjoy postseason success at the District and State levels.

Interscholastic Athletic Program

Through athletic participation, students realize the full range of their talents and abilities. The program strives to develop confidence, camaraderie, enthusiasm, leadership, and discipline within the student athlete. Most of all, students enjoy their peers as well as their adult mentors, such as their coaches.
