Philadelphia High School Football
History of Springside Chestnut Hill Academy
in Philadelphia, PA

Return to TedSilary.com Home Page

 This page details much of the football history of Springside Chestnut
Hill Academy (a k a SCH Academy) in Philadelphia, PA. The school's
name was Chestnut Hill Academy until it merged with its next-door
sister school, Springside School, for the 2011-12 school year.
  The Blue Devils, then known as the Hillers, made their football debut
in 1900 and played patchwork schedules through 1922. They have been
part of the Inter-Ac League for four stints -- 1923-33, 1935, 1962-72
and 2006-present. They were members of the Independence League
for 25 seasons (1981-2005). They did not field a team from 1942 through
1955.
  If corrections are needed, please contact Ted Silary at tedtee307@yahoo.com
and provide verification of new information, if possible. Thanks!
  Some research is still being conducted/cross-checked.
 
(Information prior to 1976 was provided mostly by Dr. Roger B. Saylor,
a famed Pennsylvania football historian. He passed away in 2013.)
