Campus life is an important component of any school experience and here at Southern Tier Catholic School and Archbishop Walsh Academy, we make it a priority that our students experience numerous activities in and outside of the classroom. The premise of a Catholic education is developing the whole student - to include academics, extra-curricular activities, athletics, service projects and the understanding that we have an obligation to encourage spiritual thought and critical moral thinking leading to moral action. This involves emphasizing values, discipline, respect for self and others and high standards.
Students are required to be neatly dressed and properly attired while they are in the building or outside the building, representing the school. Acceptable dress is fully explained in the Uniform Policy and clothing is available from Flynn & O'Hara Uniform Company. A dress code is an essential part of our educational atmosphere because it helps students see themselves and each other as they truly are, outside of current trends and fashions.
Discipline at the schools is rooted in the understanding that orderliness and progress are the direct results of a commitment to discipline. We want to give our students the best possible start in the world, and a solid footing in self-discipline is an essential beginning.
We provide many extracurricular activities for students. The schools believe that providing additional outlets for creativity, advancement, and socializing is an instrumental responsibility for any school, and we take that responsibility seriously. Students can choose between established programs, or may even decide to start a new club themselves!
