Souderton Area High School brings students together through its Unified Sports program. Unified Sports is an all-inclusive program that involves both typical and special students. Typical and special students are engaged as teammates in sports, such as Bocce and Track. Program events are not only a healthy, fun activity, but also a great way to bring together the school community. SAHS first instituted Unified Track and Field in the 2015-16 school year, and then added Unified Bocce during the 2016-17 school year.

What is a Unified Champion School?
In order to become a Unified Champion School, Souderton met the three-prong criteria necessary to gain national recognition: to offer Unified programs (Souderton’s sports programs won championships in both bocce and track and field at the state and county levels); provide youth leadership; and have "whole school engagement."
