The Inter-Academic League has suspended athletic competition through the end of the calendar year because of COVID-19 concerns.

The Archdiocese had earlier postponed postponed fall sports for its high schools, shutting down most of the Catholic League, which followed the Public League,  Del Val League and  Friends Schools League.

“This decision was made given the unprecedented health concerns we face and in consideration with  Gov. Wolf’s strong recommendation as well as updated policy recommendations from CHOP Policy Lab,” the league announced in a statement.


The Inter-Ac League includes Episcopal Academy, Malvern Prep, Germantown Academy, Penn Charter, Haverford School and Springside Chestnut Hill Academy.
