Inter-Academic League

The Inter-Academic League, or Inter-Ac, is a high school sports league among private schools in the Philadelphia area and surrounding suburbs. The Philadelphia private schools were organized into a conference early, in 1887, when they came together in the Interacademic Athletic Association (the name was later shortened to its present configuration). Two initial sports offered by the league were football and track and field. Early members were Germantown Academy, Haverford Grammar, Penn Charter, De Lancey, Friends Central, Swarthmore, and Episcopal Academy. After the turn of the century the league featured a full calendar of sports, adding ice hockey, baseball, tennis, and basketball in the first decade after the turn of the century. the Inter-ac remains the country's oldest inter-scholastic athletic conference.
