The mission of the St. Anne’s Interscholastic Sports Program is identical to that of the school: to enhance the intellectual, spiritual, physical, and social growth of our students. The goals of the interscholastic sports program at St. Anne's are to introduce students to a variety of team sports, to expose students to new athletic challenges and to introduce students to inter-scholastic experience and competition. In addition to skill development as a basic component of sports at SAES, coaches teach and promote sportsmanship for self, teammates, and opponents, as well as respect and responsibility.
St. Anne's interscholastic sports program is a huge part of after school life for students in grades 6 – 8. We participate in the Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association and field nine seasonal teams .
Sports Offered Here at St. Anne's:
cross country ( co-ed)
