STUDENT LIFE AT ST. ED'S

Beyond the Classroom

A St. Edward student's education does not depend solely on academics. A successful life expresses itself in more than the intellectual. St. Edward High School encourages many student activities in the hope of giving opportunities for wider associations among students and faculty. In addition, universities tend to look for young men who balance and round-out their personalities by participation in extracurriculars.

 

Active involvement shows more than merely a variety of interests; it is very often a sign or index of the type of person applying to a college or a particular occupation. It generally shows that a person has adjusted well to the school society and that he has given of himself as well as having received.

 

St. Edward High School offers a wide variety of co-curricular and student life opportunities that Edsmen are encouraged to become involved with beginning with the first day of freshman year.  The most successful student experiences includes those that include many opportunities for growth and discovery.  Our extracurricular options are designed for just that.

Below is the list of many of the co-curricular opportunities available to St. Edward students.  If an activity of interest does not exist, students are always encouraged to start a new club with the assistance of a sponsoring member of the faculty or staff.
