Life at Marist School is about becoming a whole person in the image of Christ. As such, Marist encourages students to participate in clubs and activities 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. Marist faculty moderate, sponsor, and mentor all activities and clubs, but students drive the scope, program, and purpose. Marist offers more than 50 clubs with opportunities in the arts and athletics as well as cultural, religious, and service-related affairs. Most activities are open to all, though some clubs require an invitation based on specific criteria and others have a selection process. All clubs and activities help students cultivate existing interests and generate new ones so that education takes place both inside and outside the classroom.
