Clubs & Organizations

Clubs and Extra-Curricular Programs

Develop new skills. Explore interests. Build friendships. These are some of the great benefits of joining a club or participating in an extra-curricular program at Archbishop Hannan. Our activities also challenge students to prioritize and balance schedules and cooperate with others. We encourage you to check the school calendar and explore the many facets of the Archbishop Hannan experience.

Art Club

The Art Club is focused on creating unique things. It is a place to have fun and make neat stuff, such as t-shirt tote bags, bird feeders and houses, and clay projects (in the new ceramic studio). There will be two meetings per month. One meeting is to go over the project and the materials and the next meeting is to complete the project. 

Blackfriars (Drama Club)

The Drama Club exists to foster freedom of expression in a way that embraces all of what it means to be human.

Through plays, sketches, skits, and theatre technology (lighting/sound, etc) the Drama Club, lovingly called the Blackfriars, explore their own humanity as well as the experience shared by us all.
