The Athletic program at Sacred Heart Academy plays an important role in the total educational development of the student. The program helps students realize the full range of their talents and abilities. The school’s interscholastic athletic program strives to develop CONFIDENCE, COMRADERY, ENTHUSIASM, LEADERSHIP, and DISCIPLINE within the student athlete. Most of all, the sports program teaches the students to enjoy their peers as well as their adult mentors, such as their coaches. Experiencing pleasant interscholastic experiences, the student will gain a positive attitude in life, which will enhance their studies and relationships with people, now and in the future. The competitiveness in sports makes the students very well prepared for the trials and tribulations that they may face in life. Our student athletes advance to a very successful academic career in college due to their interscholastic experiences.
