So much of the learning that takes place during the high school years takes place outside the classroom. Experiential learning contributes enormously to the holistic education that Magnificat provides its students.
Magnificat offers more than 60 co-curricular student clubs, organizations, teams and activities that provide students with multiple opportunities to pursue their individual areas of interest, while developing their gifts and talents as they move through their teenage years. Everything from athletics to speech and debate, animal outreach to sustainability, these co-curriculars provide important venues for students to learn and grow, meet and make friends, and develop their leadership skills.
The Campus Ministry programs are another vital area of the growth and learning that takes place outside the traditional classrooms at Magnificat. Students involved in Campus Ministry play key roles in becoming leaders in liturgical ministries, the retreat and service programs, and the peace and justice initiatives. The Campus Ministry programs complement the Theology Department curriculum in encouraging students to grow spiritually and holistically.
All of the co-curricular activities are designed to help each individual student identify her unique gifts and talents, to develop friendships and to find her niche, and to grow in her understanding of God present in her life, and the call to learn, lead and serve in the spirit of Mary’s Magnificat.
