About PC Athletics
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!
