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 InterAcademic 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 high 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.
Each year, Notre Dame presents an award to honor Aimee Willard, a Notre Dame graduate whose life was cut tragically short in 1996. The award, which recognizes excellence in athletics and academics, is presented to a senior at graduation.
