West Catholic High School

Overview

Go Burrs!

Our athletic programs teach student-athletes to compete while giving them the opportunity to develop teamwork and sportsmanship.

Discipline, selflessness, and hard work—that’s what it takes to excel in athletics. Our championship-winning teams are fierce competitors in the city, PIAA District 12, and Catholic League. West holds 44 city, four state, and 80 Catholic League championships.

Students learn much more than physical skills through their participation in athletics. Through this experience, students are able to develop courage as they take risks and character as they overcome adversity. While the focus is to facilitate the development of each student’s athletic potential, the greater hope is to instill lifelong lessons that will impact students off the field or court.
