Extra-curricular Activities and Clubs

At Nashua Catholic, learning does not begin and end in the classroom. We believe that involvement in extracurricular activities helps to inspire.

Students are encouraged to discover interests beyond the classroom and that is why we offer a broad spectrum of extra-curricular activities including clubs from drama to chess, MathCounts to writing, service to Minecraft.

Afterschool Dances

Dances are sponsored by student council and are held on select Fridays from 6:30 – 8:30 PM. Only Nashua Catholic students are permitted to attend these dances. Dances are typically in the cafeteria, and students may only enter and exit using those doors. Parents looking to pick up their child before the end of the dance must provide a written note. Appropriate out-of-uniform attire is required.

Dances will be held on October 26, and December 7.
