Clubs and Activities
In addition to our Athletic and Fine Arts Programs, St. Patrick Academy coordinates the organization of various clubs according to the interests of the student body. Each club is under the direction of a moderator and meets at scheduled times after school. These clubs include:
The Student Council consists of four students from each grade who are elected by the students in their class. Those elected student representatives then elect the Student Council officers. The Student Council coordinates and plans student activities, provides services to the wider community, and works with the faculty and administration in bringing about meaningful change in the school. The Council plans, organizes, and conducts social activities for the entire school community, and oversees the activities of individual classes. The moderator supervises all activities organized and sponsored by the Student Council.
A group of Providence College chemistry students organize weekly science experiments for St. Patrick Academy students. These safe and controlled experiments allow students the opportunity to explore the workings of our environment, the human body and the universe in the disciplines of physical science, biology, chemistry and physics.
Several Providence College students meet weekly with St. Patrick Academy freshmen and sophomores to explore the issues and opportunities that college life offers. Other opportunities, such as free college basketball games and trips to college campuses, are organized for all St. Patrick students.
Students meet once a week with our Art teacher, Ms. Patty Hart, to expand their skills and knowledge of art. Various art forms are explored and group projects are undertaken.
Students For Life
Students for Life is a positive support organization that emphasizes the importance of life and informs students about the reality of abortion, violence, substance abuse, and other behaviors that violate human dignity, especially those that threaten human life. Its goal is to advocate for the sanctity of human life; members are invited to participate in the annual "Right to Life March in Washington" (depending on schedule conflicts with the school calendar).
