As a Salesian school we believe that athletics and recreation play a vital role in the development of the whole person. Our athletic teams, coaches, and staff are committed to excellence, fair play, and sportsmanship. The trophies and banners displayed in our gym, which highlight our district, regional, and state titles, are a testament to the overall success of our Baron sports program.
The Youth Ministry program at SPCHS seeks to offer opportunities for the members of our school community to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ. Varied prayer experiences, the celebration of the sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation, together with the study of Scripture helps to make possible a deeper knowledge of Jesus and a commitment to a Gospel way of life. Our Service Program teaches students to reach out to people who have real needs and to contribute to the good of the community in which they live.
In addition to athletics and youth ministry SPCHS offers a variety of other clubs and organizations which students may join.
