With so many different personalities and interests scattered throughout the school, Catholic High has provided numerous extracurricular activities throughout the past century. Before 1987, St. Peter’s College and Mt. Carmel Academy offered an abundance of both academic and social clubs that complemented the education the students received. Ranging from Glee Club to Yearbook Club, these extracurricular activities formed a safe haven from the chaotic world of schoolwork.
St. Peter’s College was a host for many unique extracurricular activities that enhanced the student life and set itself apart from nearby schools. This college preparatory school offered several unusual clubs that became popular amongst the students such as the Rodeo Club, Mu Alpha Theta, the Altar Boy Society, and The Knights of the Divine Child.
As an all girl school, Mount Carmel Academy was an institution that stood out in the small town of New Iberia. Having such a distinct characteristic allowed the school to provide clubs and extracurricular activities added to its originality. Glee Club, Sodality Club, and the Pep Squad were a few of the uncommon extracurricular activities that were active at Mount Carmel.
Catholic High School today continues to offer a variety of extracurricular activities. Service clubs include Key Club, Student Council, and Beta club. Resembling clubs, teams have been formed by people who share similar values. For example, retreat team is a group of students who enjoy spreading their faith to others; Music Ministry is composed of teenagers that fill the Disch gym with their unique voices every Thursday at mass; also, the Pro-Life team contains students who are determined to save the lives of the defenseless. Last but not least, The band, reestablished in 2010, is a great extracurricular activity for the musically talented.
