Clubs & Activities

St. Michael High School offers a wide range of co-curricular activities that appeal to the interests and needs of our students. Each individual student is encouraged to participate in any of these activities that appeal to his or her own unique skills and talents. 

Organizations and clubs include participation in academic activities and projects, fine arts projects, literary work ventures, community service projects, and school spirit activities. St. Michael encourages its students to participate in at least one co-curricular activity. To become a member of any organization, a student must contact the moderator of that group. Each officer and member is committed to abide by the guidelines and policies for the clubs and organizations in which they participate. 

St. Michael students are also encouraged to submit proposals for new clubs that appeal to their interests or passions. Proposals for new clubs may be submitted to Jackie Moseley via email. 

A comprehensive list of every club and its description can be found below. 

St. Michael Student Ambassadors provide campus tours, serve as hosts for guests on campus, and perform duties at various SMHS campus and community events.  Students can join Ambassadors as early as 9th grade pending approval from administration.

The Junior Classical League creates and promotes interest in the classical languages of Greece and Rome.  It spends its time on service projects and activities promoting the spirit of Latin.  It culminates in a weekend spent at the JCL Convention participating in academic contests, certamen (quiz bowl), Olympic events, and fellowship with other Latin students in the state.

JCL Creed

We, the members of the Junior Classical League, covenant to hand on the torch of classical civilization in the modern world.
We believe an acquaintance with the civilization of Greece and Rome will help us to understand and appraise this world today, which is indebted to ancient civilization in its government and laws, literature, language, and arts.
We affirm the JCL experience develops responsibility, fosters brotherhood, promotes enthusiasm, encourages competition, inspires dedication, and enriches our total growth.

JCL Philosophy

We believe that through the National Junior Classical League:

  1. We will gain an active appreciation and understanding of the civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome, thereby better enabling us as individuals to interpret and appraise our own world.
  2. We have a sound structure that provides a sound basis for the expansion of our horizons and perspectives, intellectually, socially, and esthetically.
  3. We have a viable organization that can effectively create in others a sense of awareness, interest, and appreciation as far as the value of classics is concerned.
