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 (NCISAS, 4A Classification).
In partnership with Raleigh Orthopedics, Saint Mary's School provides an athletic trainer for all on-campus practices and games.
