"Extracurricular activities at Catholic High have led me through the Catholic High experience and have helped me grow as a better person. The more activities I am involved in, the more I am able to give back and enjoy my high school experience."
Ryan McGinty/Class of 2013/Catholic High School
We believe that our schools should have a wide variety of quality extracurricular activities as a way of enhancing our holistic approach to education. The purpose of such variety is to give ample opportunity to students to develop their skills and to make the school a stimulating and inviting place. Quality extracurricular programs develop students' pride in their school and in themselves, increase their receptivity to formation, and promote their success in all aspects of school life.
