Athletics at Arlington Catholic

For over fifty years, Arlington Catholic (AC) has had a strong athletic program for both male and female student-athletes. A proud member of the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) and the Catholic Central League (CCL), Arlington Catholic offers 26 varsity sports for boys and girls alike. With a heavy emphasis on participation, AC is committed to offering junior varsity and freshman teams to its students, along with having several programs open to students of all grade levels. It’s no surprise that 75% of our student body plays at least one sport!

AC’s athletic program boasts several state championships, numerous CCL championships, and countless student-athletes who have gone on to the college of their choice to continue their education and their athletic careers. We are proud of the sportsmanship our student-athletes display each season, their successes in the classroom, and especially their contributions in the community. The experiences our student-athletes share with the AC Community make memories for life - why not come and be a part of AC Athletics?
