Clubs

Nativity of Mary Catholic School’s mission is to “foster academic excellence and spiritual growth.” As part of this mission, students have the opportunity to join various clubs. Clubs and activities empower students to learn more about their own personal interests and strengths. Here is just a sampling of active clubs to enrich the mind and soul at Nativity.
