Extracurricular Activities at the School of St. Mary


The School of Saint Mary believes in educating the whole child, and that happens both inside and outside the classroom. Extracurricular activities allow students to further their education and focus on their non-academic interests, helping to create well-rounded individuals. SOSM offers a variety of activities and clubs for all students. Please be sure to follow all links, as many of the programs require registration with outside organizations. 

Families must pay for activities prior to student attendance unless otherwise stated. Families must be current with their tuition and fee payments in order to register for extracurricular activities.

Clubs at the School of St. Mary


Chess-Ed continues providing this unique, exciting, and dynamic chess instruction, which lifts each student to a new level of expertise. Each week, students will enjoy an engaging lesson with supervised time to play with classmates. Students will grow their knowledge of the game - from the basics through opening theory, middle-game tactics, and end-game combinations. Students' vocabulary and math skills will continue to advance. Studies confirm that the student who plays chess does better academically.
