In addition to an outstanding academic program, San Jose Catholic School offers a wide variety of extracurricular activities.

These meaningful opportunities provide our students with outlets designed to balance academic studies and recognize individual and team skills, learn the value of putting forth the best effort, and achieving personal growth and development. Whether it’s serving on Student Council or the National Junior Honor Society, competing in Lego Robotics, Geography Bee, or Science Fair, or performing in a school play, each student is encouraged to become involved in activities that they enjoy.

Please browse through the Extracurricular Activities made available to our students.
