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 extra-curriculars.
