Campus Life


Zeal creates time and energy where there would be none.
Faith. Leadership. Service. Collaboration. Self-discovery. Woven throughout the curriculum and our principles of community, these are also the very characteristics that define our campus life.

Handed down from founder St. Madeleine Sophie, our directive is clear: to ensure a safe and welcoming campus, where a healthy balance between school and personal life is promoted, and where each person is valued, cared for, and respected.  Here, community differences are celebrated, self-discovery is encouraged and supported, and opportunities to share individual talents and passions with the greater campus abound every single day.

SHS' broad array of co-curricular and enrichment programs provide an additional outlet for creativity and innovation. Students challenge themselves and each other, reach beyond the familiar and imagine new possibilities, and develop essential skills such as teamwork, self-discipline, and perseverance. The breadth of student clubs and organizations reflect ever-changing and diverse interests, and importantly, provide the means for students to practice leadership, and work effectively with peers in pursuit of common goals.
