Clubs and Activities

Do you want to broaden your Jesuit experience and make new friends? Do you have a great interest or hobby to share with others?  Have you considered trying something new?

Jesuit clubs and activities provide a significant venue for our students to engage in endeavors outside of the classroom and pursue their own interests. Through participation in these activities, students have opportunities to form meaningful friendships as they continue the journey to becoming Men for Others.

All Jesuit clubs and activities must be approved by the Assistant Principal for Student Affairs and have a faculty sponsor. If a student has a particular passion or interest not currently available on our club list, we encourage him to visit the Office of Student Affairs to discuss the possibility of creating a new club and applying for its approval.
