Extracurricular Activities

Learning happens in a myriad of ways: at home around the dinner table, in the classroom seated quietly at desks, in the classrooms sprawled out all around the room, in the field while kicking a soccer ball, after school with old friends and new friends while practicing speeches or struggling to juggle, and while preparing to proclaim scripture or preparing to bake a cake.  Since the demanding curriculum doesn’t always allow time to teach some of the exciting topics that guide students to personal growth the following  extracurricular offerings have been developed to meet that need. 

Extracurricular offerings include but are not limited to:

  • Art Club
  • Band
  • Bellarmine Speech
  • Bricks for Kids
  • Chess Club
  • Coding
  • Girls on the Run
  • Golf
  • Little Medical School
  • Kickball Tournament
  • Mad Science
  • Math Contests
  • Parish Sports
  • Safety Patrol
  • Servers
  • Sewing Club
  • Science Fair
  • Scouting
  • Student Council
  • Tippi Toes Dance Class
  • Vacation Bible School
  • Yoga
