Learning Outside of Classes

The last bell of the academic day rings at 2:45 p.m. But that doesn't mean it's time to go home.
 
We believe at CM that learning continues outside of classes.
 
Participation in CM’s clubs and activities is an important part of the CM experience. Catholic Memorial offers a robust set of extracurricular opportunities in a range of areas including public speaking, art, performing arts, music, service organizations, and leadership development programs.

The expansive set of offerings allows students to pursue interests outside the classroom, discover new ones, and develop a better sense of their identity. As a school that emphasizes relationships, the extracurricular program invites students to create new friendships and develop rapport with faculty and staff.
