Activities

At Holy Ghost Prep, participation in extra-curricular activities is an important part of the formation of community "in one heart and one mind."   More than 75% of Holy Ghost students compete in interscholastic athletics and all HGP students are involved in extra-curricular activities either on- or off-campus.  26 inter-scholastic teams and 44 current extra-curricular organizations and clubs offer students a wide range of choices for personal and community growth and travel across the region, across the nation and even around the world. Extracurricular activities take place during the school day, after school, and on weekends. Each student is encouraged to listen to an­nouncements made at Morning Assembly and look to the student announcement board for more information concerning starting dates, times, and moderators. New clubs may form, on a formal or informal basis, throughout the year as well, in consultation with the faculty and the approval of the Principal.
