The spirit of Penn Charter athletics is built on a rich and storied tradition of excellence. We believe that the interplay of the three A's – academics, arts, athletics – leads to strong, creative, resilient and flexible people – people who are able to adjust, reposition and be ready for any opportunity that comes their way. Skilled teachers and coaches help our students understand – whether in mathematics or tennis – how to collaborate and compete, how to win with grace, and how to handle challenges and setbacks. Go Charter!


Penn Charter has provided student athletes with resources to match their talents. On 44 acres, Penn Charter offers its players and fans:

  • six grass playing fields, one synthetic turf field, one all-weather track, seven tennis courts, 10 squash courts, four basketball courts, and one swimming pool.
