Providence Cristo Rey students are encouraged to participate in clubs that enrich their high school experience. Check out a few of our school clubs!
Art Club is a safe space in which students are able to express themselves through a variety of artistic media and develop their artistic and creative talents. Students can share their own styles through peer-taught lessons, beautify the school through projects such as murals or decorations for events like Hispanic Heritage Month and Black History Month, and learn more about the local art community through field trips to local art museums, galleries, and studios. Other activities include workshops led by visiting artists, step-by-step lessons, and art-related service opportunities. Students of all skill and experience levels are welcome to join and participate.

Debate Club's aim is to empower PCR students with the skills of expressing their beliefs clearly and concisely, public speaking and effective communication in a formal setting, and staying aware of current events in the world. Students learn to interact with fellow peers and potentially with other schools using the Socratic method. Despite the seemingly serious nature of debates, we never forget to have fun along the way!

We shoot things!! The archery club is a group that meets after school once a week. Each week we focus on a new aspect of proper shooting form which helps shooters become more consistent and controlled. It is a great place to blow off steam and learn how to deal with our daily stress by overcoming a focused task.
