Sportsmanship & stewardship.

The NFCS Athletics Department is committed to furthering our school’s mission of whole child development through physical fitness, good sportsmanship, and healthy relationships with teammates, opponents, and coaches. 

For high school and middle school students who are academically sound and in good social standing, we offer a variety of competitive sports and opportunities for our student athletes to represent our school community as proud Bulldogs. 

In addition to our own high standards, we follow the directives, rules, regulations, and guidelines for both High School and Middle School set by the Penn-Jersey Athletic Association (PJ-AA), the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA), and the Southeastern Pennsylvania Charter Athletic League (SEPCAL).
