The Academy of Notre Dame Athletics Department embraces the philosophy that competitive athletic programs should complement the excellent academic traditions of the school. Our athletic program aims to develop self-discipline, loyalty, pride, teamwork, cooperation, and respect for others. Notre Dame is a member of the Inter Academic Athletic League, which stresses excellence in academics and offers a competitive atmosphere for sports.
In addition, we play a highly competitive non-league schedule in all upper school sports, competing against other public and parochial schools from Delaware, Bucks, and Montgomery counties. Notre Dame encourages the multi-sport athlete, recognizing the value of the full athletic experience. Many of our student-athletes go on to participate in sports at the collegiate level.
The middle school athletic program emphasizes skill building, team spirit, and sportsmanship. Notre Dame is a member of the Girls Catholic Academy League in field hockey, basketball, lacrosse, and softball. The soccer, tennis, volleyball, and swimming teams compete independently.
