Extracurricular Clubs

Assumption High School provides countless activities beyond the classroom to complement students’ studies. Assumption students take full advantage of these opportunities to learn, have fun, and make a difference. Over half the AHS student population participates in the fine arts program, two-thirds of the student body is active in at least one sport, and most students are involved in numerous extracurricular activities. Emphasis on academics, activities, and spiritual development enhances the overall quality of AHS students, and each of these aspects is essential to an Assumption education.
