Athletic Department

Athletics and activities round out the day at Perkiomen. Varsity, junior varsity, and middle school sports offer a variety of choices for both skilled and developing athletes. Several Perkiomen alumni are playing varsity athletics in college. Four members of the Class of 2019 are playing Division I baseball and basketball.

Perkiomen School is a member of the Tri-County Independent School League, the Penn-Jersey Athletic Association (girls soccer), and is a founding member of the Keystone State Football League (8-player football) and plays both league and non-league games throughout the seasons.

Perkiomen is also a member of the Pennsylvania Independent Schools Athletic Association and participates in various state tournaments throughout the year.

All students are required to participate in an after school activity each trimester.

Upper School – Perkiomen School does not offer physical education classes for Upper School students. Students are required to participate, as a team player, in at least one interscholastic team sport, or one of the other physically active programs, each school year. Activities run from 3:15-5:30 p.m. daily.

Middle School – Students are required to participate in the after school program, which includes a competitive sports schedule, and there is an option to try out for the Middle School play in the winter term. All activities run from 3:15-4:30 p.m. daily.

Students who are actively engaged at a high level in an athletic activity that Perkiomen does not offer but that is comparable to the expectations and time commitment required of all students may petition the Athletic Department for an exemption to Perkiomen’s school-offered activity requirement.

The activity exception form must be submitted to the Director of Athletics at least two weeks prior to the start of the athletic season.
