Student Life

Clubs and Organizations

Joining a co-curricular club or activity provides an opportunity to polish leadership skills. More importantly, it is a great way to meet other students who share a similar interest. Whether you are interested in student government, music, ministry or yearbook, there is something for everyone.

Some clubs, groups or activities require applications, tryouts, or elections to participate. Some require that certain standards of eligibility be met for consideration.

Pictured above, Rosary's Mission Club traveled to Maumee, Ohio to perform works of service in July 2022.
