EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES & CLUBS

There is something to do for every student, and every interest, at St. Bartholomew School!  Extracurricular activities range from sports, to drama, to art and STEM clubs.  Activities and offerings rotate seasonally, so there is always something new for our student body.  Activities and clubs are designed to ensure that the whole child is being educated and so that every child has the opportunity to develop interests and skills to enhance their understanding of the world and how they can, as independent people, contribute to it in a constructive and healthy way.
