The Sacred Heart Cardinals

Home of 102 State & Runner-up Titles!

We encourage athletic participation in all of our students, regardless of ability. Competing at any level, fosters the development of leadership, sportsmanship, confidence, teamwork, time management and a healthy lifestyle.
Sue Bower, Athletics Director

Every girl can be a leader. Every leader can be a champion.

The athletic program is an integral component of the student athlete's overall experience at the Academy of the Sacred Heart. We strive to give our girls a wide variety of athletic experiences to all athletes while also offering opportunities for each young woman and each team to make positive progress and reach a high level of success.

Participation on an athletic team at the Academy of the Sacred Heart is a privilege and not a right. We set just as high standards for athletics as we do for academics excellence.

Being an Academy of the Sacred Heart athlete also carries with it responsibilities to the school, to the sport, to the student body, to the community, and to the student athlete.

Student athletes are given the opportunity to develop:

  • self management
  • leadership skills
  • self esteem
  • team work
  • sportsmanship
  • overall fitness
