Athletics plays an integral part in the educational experience at Saint Mary's School.
The mission of the Saint Mary’s School athletic department is to provide a dynamic environment that promotes competitiveness, teamwork, self-discipline and sportsmanship. We aim to develop individual and team potential by promoting physical fitness along with high levels of competence, character, and citizenship.
We offer a full interscholastic athletic program, consisting of 18 teams in the following 11 sports: cross country, field hockey, golf, tennis, volleyball, basketball, swimming, lacrosse, soccer, softball, and track & field. Saint Mary's School competes as a member of the Triangle Independent Schools Athletic Conference (TISAC) and the North Carolina Independent Schools Athletic Association (NCISAA, 4A Classification).
Saint Mary's Triangle Fitness
Designed to exercise the body, mind, and spirit, Triangle Fitness is a co-curricular program providing students with a broad range of interscholastic activities from which to choose. Each student must complete 10 seasons of a Triangle Fitness activity. Activities are scheduled in conjunction with sports seasons and the performing arts calendar and students may choose to participate on an athletic team, in after-school dance classes, in the school's theatre and/or musical performances, or any combination of these, to meet their Triangle Fitness requirement.
