Student Organizations & Clubs

St. Mary’s Academy encourages students to participate in student organizations in addition to pursuing their academic work. Extracurricular activities provide students with opportunities for leadership, cooperation, performance, and service and help them develop friendships, explore their talents, contribute to the community, and have fun. Most activities are open to all, though some clubs require an invitation based on specific criteria, and others have a selection process. 

St. Mary’s faculty moderate, sponsor, and mentor all activities and clubs, but students drive the scope, program, and purpose.
