Co-Curricular Activities

At Bishop Stang High School, our mission is to educate the whole person. While the education you receive in the classroom is of the utmost importance to us, of equal value are the lessons you learn after you have closed your textbooks for the day. Whether it is on the athletic field or the stage, making opening arguments in Forensics and Debate or making closing arguments in Mock Tgirls on the fieldrial, at Bishop Stang you’ll learn the value of involvement.
