Clubs & Activities
Extracurricular opportunities contribute a great deal to the vibrant campus environment at Mount Saint Mary Academy. Many clubs meet during the school's conference period between 2:45 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., allowing students who take the bus to easily participate. Other activities are more involved and require an additional commitment of time. If students are interested in beginning a club that is not currently available, the Mount offers them the opportunity to start one. Each club and activity is coordinated by a dedicated faculty moderator. This year's offerings include:
Chimes – Yearbook
Echoes – Literary Magazine
Junior Forensics Meet
Model United Nations
National Honor Society
Peeks - Newspaper
Student Council Jr.
