Team Huddle

Leadership in Action

Teamwork, loyalty, respect, and leadership are lifelong values that our girls have the opportunity to practice each time they put on their team uniform.

Merion Mercy students receive a holistic education that includes a commitment to physical, personal, and emotional health, to best equip them for their future. Our sports programs are designed to nurture the mind, body and spirit, with participation teaching time management, responsibility, perseverance, and hard work. And of course, good sportsmanship!


A Competitive Edge

Our athletic program provides sports for all three school seasons. Most teams offer both varsity and junior varsity levels, and crew has a freshman team, so everyone has an opportunity to participate at some level. 

We’re proud to play in the Athletic Association of Catholic Academies (AACA), the only all-girls school league in Southeastern Pennsylvania, and we belong to the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) so our teams can go on to district and state competitions. 


Team Spirit

Come to a game, a meet or even a practice, and you’ll hear them: Merion Mercy athletes and fans, shouting support for their classmates. School spirit is strong, with our focus on teamwork on and off the field on display.

“Being a Merion Mercy student has opened so many doors for me. Serving my community through the Ministry team and the amazing sports opportunities I have been given are just the start of what I love about being a student here.”
