Groups & Clubs

SMCMS’s activities, athletic teams and clubs work hand-in hand with the school’s academic program to educate each student as a whole person. These activities are integral to the well-rounded spiritual, intellectual, physical and psychological development fostered in every student at St. Mary Catholic Middle School. Fees are required for many activities, but special arrangements can be made if the fee is a hardship.  Register online for a group or club activity.

The high school and middle school co-curricular activities are supported by the SMCS Booster Club. Visit the booster club webpage to learn how you can help support our 32 athletic and club activities!
