The spirit of Penn Charter athletics is built on a storied tradition of excellence and the belief that the interplay of academics, arts and athletics leads to strong, creative, resilient and flexible people.

Statement from the Inter-Academic League, Nov. 24

The Inter-Academic Athletic League Heads of School and Directors of Athletics are closely monitoring the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in our surrounding counties, as well as guidelines provided by our local counties, CHOP PolicyLab and the CDC. As we conclude our modified fall season and prepare for our winter season, it is important that we pause to assess the most recent information available before we determine our course for the winter season.

Beginning December 1, 2020, League schools are permitted to conduct athletic activities in accordance with local and school guidelines. Additionally, the Directors of Athletics have developed several winter Inter-Ac League-only scheduling scenarios that could commence after the New Year. In all scenarios, League schedules would conclude by the end of February.

Additional information about schedules, health and safety protocols will be forthcoming, including the probability of extremely limited numbers of spectators at venues.

Part of the Inter-Academic League and home to the oldest schoolboy rivalry in the country, the Penn Charter Quakers have won countless championships and many graduates go on to play their sport in college, and some professionally. 

Skilled teachers and coaches help our students understand – whether on the playing field or in the classroom – how to collaborate and compete, how to win with grace, and how to handle challenges and setbacks. All athletic teams at Penn Charter strive to provide quality instruction to student-athletes and to develop the core values that stem from our beliefs and practices as a Quaker institution.

Learn about plans for a new Athletics and Wellness Center.

Congratulations to Sally Foley and Akeel Blake on their Inter-Ac Athletic Directors Awards!

Each year, athletic directors from the Inter-Academic League award two seniors from each school their recognition of the student's significant accomplishments as an athlete, a teammate, a leader and as a student.
